THINK PINK ~ BEHIND THE SCENES

Well, the Chairs for Charity event is done and our Red Carpet Christmas event has come and gone, so I thought I would share a few before and after photos of the chairs that we auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Langley Christmas Bureau. Above is the 'before" picture of the chair that we paired up with local business "Forever Your Lingerie".





If you have every been in Sonya's store, you know the colour is PINK! I wanted to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint as much as possible but to get the right shade of pink I started with an oil base paint and I was not happy with the results, so....Kristy from 4 the Love of Wood to the rescue. Kristy offered and I was happy for the help and just look at what she brought over!!! And so, the mixing and spraying begins...a little of this and a little of that and little Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and we have a beautiful one of a kind, never to be duplicated colour and finish!









A quick trip to the upholsterer, again picking fabric that depicts Forever Yours. A beautiful photo of our "celebrity" Sonya and it is off to the auction block!





This sweet baby brought in a good dollar and all monies were donated to the

Langley Christmas Bureau!





A happy ending...our pink chair goes to a great home!



More to come!
