We’ve been super-busy behind the scenes at Furniture Station HQ over the past few months, working to get a new up-cycling project off the ground to help with our fundraising efforts. And now we’re ready to introduce it to the world!
Join us for our launch event taking place at Hazel Grove Baptist Church, 11am – 1pm on August 3rd, 2017 – where as well as viewing our latest painted furniture items, you can take a break with tea, coffee, and of course – cake! Plus we’ve mini chalk paint demonstrations for you to enjoy. (Full details below…)
The Up-cycling Station – what’s it about?
With the current trend in up-cycling furniture still huge news, it seemed the perfect opportunity to branch out a little with an exciting new community project.
The Up-cycling Station will transform pre-loved furniture into stylish pieces finished in Annie Sloan chalk paint – available for the public to buy. But that’s not all: the project will also offer members of the community the chance to get involved, learn some new skills & gain work experience by joining us on a volunteer placement. The project itself will help support our mission with full proceeds going back into The Furniture Station work, helping local families to build more stable lives with essential items.
Roll up, roll up for our fantabulous launch event!
To launch The Up-cycling Station we’re putting on a little event to proudly show you all what we’ve been up to and tell you some more about it. There will be tea, coffee, lots of cake – and we’ll also be offering FREE 15 minute workshops to show you the basics of up-cycling – so you can give a shabby-chic update to your own furniture at home!
If you’re a local business – we’d love you to come along too. As well as a cuppa, you can also find out more about our corporate volunteering days – a great opportunity for businesses to get their employees together to volunteer something special. In transforming our pieces – they’re actually transforming lives!
Join is on August 3 2017 (11am – 1pm) for our ‘The Upcycling Station Grand Launch’. We hope to see you there!
