Hi there! I’m Michele and welcome to my first post on ReuseitJunkie!
My passion is upcycling, refashioning, and refurbishing furniture, clothing and household items. I hate seeing an old lamp or perfectly good piece of wood going to waste!
One of my favorite childhood memories was receiving bags of hand-me-downs and dreaming up ways to refashion them by cutting them up, removing collars, changing buttons and embroidering flowers. I said I was crafty, not popular!
Enough about me.
Let’s talk about you.
You love creating something unique for your home, something special that has meaning and makes you smile every time you look at it.
You love the easy, family-friendly farmhouse look but don’t have a Pottery Barn budget.
You love making sweet handmade gifts for the ones you love.
You love Mother Earth and are always looking for tips on eco-friendly living.
You’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty. In fact, you think it’s kinda fun!
My goal with this blog is to inspire you to dive into your resourcefulness and creativity to create beautiful items, reduce waste and save some money along the way!
Now that we know each other a bit better, I invite you to stay awhile.

Drop by anytime and say hi! I’d love to hear from you!
