Inspired by Salvage, DIY Event Recap
Joanne Palmisano shared her tips, ideas and recent projects with us at the Salvage Secrets Tour in our Brooklyn reuse center. From using salvaged doors to build a custom island for your kitchen, to making charming housewarming gifts with a salvage-spin, to creating a custom headboard with mis-matched antique trim - Joanne has inspired even us about creative ways to use reclaimed materials!
Check back soon for more ideas from Joanne's tour!
