DIY - Goodwill Guru


Hi. I'm Renae Corvi the Goodwill Guru. 

From a very young age I had the drive to be an entrepreneur to do what I loved best which is to share my creativity with others. Through all the ups and downs and the unexpected in my life, Goodwill has always been an amazing creative outlet for me. Goodwill's mission helps people to transform their lives, and in many ways, that's exactly what I do with the items I find. Being able to do this over the years Goodwill has unknowingly helped me to express my creativity and share my passion with others. 

A few years ago, I began keeping a picture journal of the treasures that I found at Goodwill. The photos are a before and after of what I rescued and re-purposed. I'm compiling the photos to create a book of all my findings, which I hope will sit on many coffee tables to come. I hope you enjoy my how to videos as much as I did making them.  Happy Re-purposing, 
Renae the Goodwill Guru
