Giving Back and having fun at the same time.
Have a houseful of painted furniture and are looking for any reason to paint another piece. I have a great idea for you Cottage Paint addicts. “Give Back” and Paint for those who are less fortunate and have fun at the same time.
I have connected with a great organization called the Furniture Bank who redistributes donated furniture to those in need. The person or family gets registered through a qualified organization such as the “Women’s Shelter” or Refugees immigrating to Canada. These are people that have little or nothing to furnish a home. Once registered they make an appointment and get to wander though the furniture warehouse with a volunteer and pick out furnishing for each room in their home .
I know ….I know isn’t it wonderful.
Makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over.
When I visited their facility I saw a number of ways that I could “Give Back” to others and do what I loved to do at the same time. They took me to an area that had a number of dated and or damaged furniture that was not moving. I proposed to them that I could take away a few challenged pieces and work my magic with the Cottage Paint Products. They happily accepted my offer and after a few weeks I completed the following three pieces.
Cottage Paint‐ Khaki and Serenity Black. Fabric coated top using Cottage Paint Fabric Adhesive and Satin Wax plus a Texture Paste stencil added to the top drawer front.
Cottage Paint‐ Beechwood and Urban Paint Liquid Metal ‐Titanium
