Our friend Joanne Palmisano has been a busy lady! We’re so excited that she’ll be visiting our Portland flagship store on May 9th to talk about her passion for salvage and design. Keep reading to learn what she’s been up to lately.
I wake up in the morning thinking about salvage projects and go to bed at night thinking about salvage projects. I worked all last week filming, designing, and building for DIY Network. Then when I got home, what did I do? Work on a DIY project with a great friend. That’s right, I’m addicted.
Because I was able to turn my passion into my career, I consider myself a lucky gal. From the moment my book, Salvage Secrets, released in September to today, filming an online series for DIY Network and preparing for my second book, I have not taken a moment for granted. I’m thrilled at all the amazing people I have met along the way: homeowners who are passionate about salvage, designers who love to incorporate it, folks at retail stores who sell it (thanks Rejuvenation!), and builders who work with it. Reclaimed materials have become more and more accessible thanks to all these great people.
I’m looking forward to coming to Rejuvenation’s Portland, Oregon store on Wednesday, May 9th. I’ll show pictures of amazing homes that have incorporated salvage in some really fun and unusual ways, and share a peek at a few of my projects for DIY Network. I’ll also be scouting homes for my next book, Salvage Secrets, Reclaimed Design and Decor. If you’ve completed any home projects using salvage that you’re excited about, bring some photos to the event, as I’d love to see them!
