We have every colour ready to go!
We are excited for the arrival of 12 creative and beautiful women!
It is almost time.....
And we are off and creating! I think we will start off with a little finger painting!
Just like when we were kids!
Everyone was so happy...just look at these beautiful smiles!
More smiling happy ladies!
It was so wonderful to spend the day doing what you love!
Elinor did a great job sharing all the important information and painting secrets!
The secret is in the wax!

With this old timer we added.....
The proud colours of our city of Langley and we created the Mayor Fassbender chair! A coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite and polished up with Annie Sloan Dark Wax and this is what you get! But that is not all, oh no!!!
You also get this beauty representing the BC Lions!
Up for auction is our matching chair to the Mayor Chair but this time painted with Annie Sloan Napoleonic Blue and topped with dark wax, some team colours trimmed in white leather and up for auction this chair went complete with an autographed team photo!
This was my favorite (much to my husbands horror!) so I claimed it to become
THE PASSIONATE HOME CHAIR!
After removing a few hundred nails and a little TLC, this little lady was treated to a coat of Annie Sloan Paris Grey, a soft distressing rub down and we finished off with a coat of dark wax. Add some vintage inspired fabric and a few NOT rusted upholstery tacks and she is a beauty!

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!

The date for our "CHAIRS FOR CHARITY" event is quickly approaching, so it is time to get to work. We have our line up of chairs just waiting to be transformed and we have secured all of our "CELEBRITIES", so let the fun begin.
Here is a sneak peak of some of our donated chairs, just waiting for some love!
THE STARBUCKS CHAIR!
Yes, you heard that right, our friends at the Starbucks Power Centre location in Langley have graciously donated this comfy, conversation, coffee drinking chair to our auction with all proceeds going to the Langley Christmas Bureau. So, since this location has recently closed, you have the opportunity to take home a bit of "Starbucks history" be sure to mark your calendar on October 27th, 6:30pm-8pm.
Starbucks is all about community, so they have not only donated this chair, but they will also be at The Passionate Home the evening the "CHAIRS FOR CHARITY" event, serving up their very best.
