A little about Repurposing Junkie

This website started in 2015. It all began with giving a white table a makeover, and painting it orange — to be an accent table in the living room.  Even with the bright color, the table was missing something. A stencil was applied that had been purchased at a favorite craft store which gave the table a little something extra, and sure enough it really made the table stand out. 

Adding this detail and seeing the results was all that was needed to be convinced that stenciling was the way to go. Stencil designs can really add detail and beauty to furniture, wall art, clothes, mugs and other accessories, walls, floors and so many other things. It’s fantastic how easy it is to make something beautiful become exquisite and eye catching just by adding a stencil overlay cut on a Cricut machine.
