This is the perfect feel-good post to kick off Easter weekend! The Green Chair Project has an impressive mission: to reuse donated household furnishings to renew lives of participants referred from area programs who are recovering after homelessness, crisis or disaster. Martha has been having a little fun over the past several weeks to help the cause. The CHAIRity Designer Chair Auction is a collection of repurposed chairs created by local designers. The top four chairs will be included in the live auction at the Heart & Home Housewarming Benefit on April 18, 2015.
Please consider voting for Southern Studio Interior Design’s Chair created by Martha here.
And now the real story behind the chair! This was a slipcovered chair that was well used and abused as Martha’s desk chair every day for several years. She spent many hours creating beautiful designs while sitting in this chair. When The Green Chair Project asked us to participate in this event, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to repurpose the chair for a great cause. Check it out…
A very special thank you to Dan McKenzie and our friends at Finish Pros for donating their craftsmanship in reupholstering the chair!
