Chairs + More Charity Event 2014 Hosted by The Passionate Home

Last August, I had the privilege of featuring a beautiful store in Langley, BC The Passionate Home as part of my goal to visit Annie Sloan Decorative Paint, Chalk Paint® Stockists.  I was so thrilled when they contacted me and asked if I wanted to be a contributor for a charity event they will be doing, the CHAIR + MORE Charity Event.  And of course, immediately, I said Yes!!! But then I thought.. Do I have a chair to spare?!

About the Event

It’s an auction event where The Passionate home collects a variety of pieces from furniture enthusiasts, DIY’ers, bloggers, and local businesses. They’ll be auctioning off just about any piece of furniture that were re-claimed, re-styled, and re-decorated including tables, chairs, chests of drawers, buffets, side tables, stools, and the list goes on. Each donor creates a piece in the theme of their blog, business, or personal style.  All funds will benefit the Langley Christmas Bureau.

Last year, they were able to raise over $4000! Take a look at the collection they had last year, Chairs for Charity 2014.

Now.. Do I have a Chair to Spare?

Oh yeah! We can do the rocking chair right? Yes, Yes, Yes! I am now willing to let go of this baby.. This was my first big project.  And as you may know,  I’ve been practicing some decorative hand painting on paper and our dining table.. It’s because of this event! I would like to really Rock the Rocking Chair with some decorative hand painting on the seat and head rest to make it more special.  What do you think? I am so excited!! Wish me luck! and I hope the hand painting goes well.. 🙂
