About

Reclaim + Upcyle = ReUse It Art.

The passion behind ReUse It Art incorporates our love of all animals, the beauty of nature, and the idea of recycling to protect the earth. We use these elements in our pallet art and our goal is to create pieces that connect to its new owner through something they love such as family, pets, quotes, or hobbies. Our pallet art is crafted from the heart and we take joy in making it meaningful for our customers.

Our passion for animals is a big part of our lives and art. In fact, we were inspired to start ReUse It Art in 2013 after creating art for a local dog rescue fundraiser. Since then, ReUse It Art has donated to many worthy charities. We also became volunteers for Everglades Angels Dog Rescue in South Florida, to volunteer our time as well as donate art to help raise funds for the animals. ReUse It Art has given us an additional opportunity to get involved and give back to our community. Our contributions may be small but our belief is that if everyone does a little, it can add up to a lot.

We create our reclaimed art from discarded pallets and found materials. We try to use all of the pallet, making wood signs, wine racks, coasters, and home decor. We remove all nails in the process and recycle them at a local scrap metal yard. We utilize natural products such as driftwood, river rocks, and corks to create multi-media, three dimensional pieces. Some of our best vacations are spent combing the shores of Canada for driftwood, the rivers of Michigan for river rocks, and the beaches of Florida for seashells, collecting treasures to be used in the art. Our four dogs are always by our side, even our cat goes with us on the road! It is an added joy spending time with our furry family while crafting our pallet art.

We take great pride in our work, and want each customer to open their one of a kind piece of art with a smile. We reuse cardboard boxes and recycled paper for shipping in an effort to reduce our impact on the environment. Doing something that you love can be therapeutic and bring peace to your life, in spite of the many splinters that comes along with it, ReUse It Art has provided that for us. At the end of the day, if we have put a smile on someone's face through our own actions or ReUse It Art, we think it's been a pretty good day!
