We are so excited to announce that we will be a part of the designers and decorator’s recreating a piece for this year’s Chair Affair in support of the Furniture Bank Toronto!
If you haven’t heard of the Furniture Bank, it’s a wonderful non-profit organization that collects gently used furniture and household items and donates them to families and persons in need. They mostly help folks in the GTA who are transitioning, leaving abusive situations or immigrating to Canada. The concept is truly near and dear to our hearts, without organizations like these so many great pieces of furniture would end up in the landfills and wouldn’t be doing any good for anyone. And isn’t that the point? It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy when we can help out people in our neighbourhood by doing something so simple! All you need to do, is give the furniture bank a call and set up a time to have your old pieces removed! They take care of the rest and it’s cheaper than bringing it to a landfill, the bonus- you’ll be helping someone rebuild the most import place- their home!
The theme for this year’s chair affair is just that- HOME! We are trying to recreate what home means through fabric, colour selection, stain and accessories and recreate a piece of furniture for auction. The night is filled with food, fun, auctions and design! If you’re interested in learning more, or attending *ahem we will be there so come say HI!* you can go to the www.furniturebank.org to learn more, like when and where!
This is the piece we have selected for a make-over! We can’t share the details yet but we’re excited for you to see the result! Speaking of which.. we better get back to work!
Have a great day!
Paint it Like New!
