Design, Decor and DIY with Joanne Palmisano

Join Joanne Palmisano, internationally-acclaimed author and award-winning contributing Designer for DIY Network for an Artweek Boston exclusive event, taking place on Saturday, May 9th 1:30 pm-4:00 pm, in Circa at Restoration Resources in Boston’s historical South End. 


Enjoy Joanne’s unique presentation on creative interior design ideas, and re-use salvaged and reclaimed vintage materials. Participate in a fun hands-on DIY workshop where you get to take home your own treasure that you create from salvaged elements found at Restoration Resources. Repurpose stair parts into candlesticks, reclaimed wood into coasters, and even make wine bottle stoppers from antique doorknobs. Event includes a private book signing, complimentary snacks & beverages, plus wine and cheese! Perfect Mother’s Day Gift or Day Out! Limited space! RSVP soon as we sold out last year! Restoration Resources will also take 10 % off a customer’s purchase as long as you mention you saw the discount offer on the Boston Design Guide Blog!

Restoration Resources is regarded as “New England’s primary source for antique architectural salvage, unique furnishings, vintage artifacts and unusual gifts”. A 2014 winner of Improper Bostonian’s, “Boston’s Best” and a two-time recipient of Boston Magazine’s, “Best of Boston Home”, Restoration Resources is touted by the media as a “destination must” and “a one-of-a-kind shopping emporium!” The retail store spills into the event venue, Circa, which can be rented out for private functions.  It also doubles as the back showroom of Restoration Resources, and is furnished with beautiful salvaged pieces such as an old vintage bar, an antique piano, a 1915 victrola, and a 1956 tube tv that are all also for sale!
