Speaking of McBurney Plaza, there’s some cool news about Passionate Home owner Carrie Thachuk. Her talents refurbishing furniture and decorating has earned her a weekly spot on the air waves – however brief.
In this age of DIY, where TV personalities show us how to renovate and redecorate, where how-to-books fill the shelves, and people can learn how to rewire the lights or fix the kitchen sink simply by watching a YouTube video, Thachuk is excited to announce she’ll be sharing advise and tips on how to recreate those expensive looks all on their own via 650AM.
“I have always been passionate about DIY,” Thachuk said. “It’s the reason I opened the Passionate Home.”
The company grew out of her passion for breathing new life into old pieces, and given that talent and her distinction as a chalk painting expert, Thachuk is going to be joining Tom Lucas, the host of Radio Real Estate Show, every Saturday morning between 10 and 11 a.m.
The show discusses all things real estate, including topics such as buying and sharing her DIY tips and answering questions. And for only two or three minutes during each of the weekend shows, Thachuk will be inspiring and encouraging people to scour their homes and local thrift stores and garage sales for those perfect pieces to refinish.
“Sometimes starting out can be a little intimidating,” she said. “I want to help people get past that fear and experience the satisfaction that comes from creating something all on your own.”
Check Thachuk on the air waves this Saturday, or visit her store in McBurney Lane in downtown Langley City.
