Chair-ity

Hey everyone, check out chair-ity.com. This is a chairity function to raise money for a new dental operatory in Auburn, where artists decorate chairs to auction off. My company, Coburn Design is organizing the whole event. In this Sunday’s Citizen and Syracuse Newspapers, there are articles running about the event. I believe that in the Syracuse Newspaper my picture (of me working on my chair) is going to be with the article. So if you get Syracuse Newspaper, check it out. I’m going to try to get a copy to post up here. If you go to the website, my chair is up under the gallery. I’m planning on doing another chair as well. If anyone out there wants to do a chair, donate a chair, or donate funds, let me know! The event is October 2, admission is $10. If you are in the area, come check it out and give a little support to a community fundraiser!

If you ever make it through Auburn, right on Genesee Street in the Metcalf Plaza building is our huge green logo! You can look in and see all the chairs, decorated and undecorated (waiting for artists). I’ll try to get a picture of that up on here to so that you may see it.

If anyone has any chairs they want to donate (preferably one that you can apolster the seat) give my mom or I a call. We have lots of ideas, but none of the chairs we have we can apoloster!

    These are very cute and a great idea. Maybe I will do some for Delaney’s Playroom!! Haven’t decided on a theme, but they would certainly make for a cute accessorie (table and chairs). Thanks!

    The chair was very easy to make. You paint the chair white, I used spray paint. Then you take a bottle of white glue (elmers or whatever brand) and mix it equal share with water. Then you take the two different colored tissue paper (previously torn into pieces). You paint on the glue mix (decoupage) and stick the paper to it! Paint over it again with the glue after you are done with the area. You can also decoupage fabric, so I cut the fish out of the fabric I bought for the seat and stuck them on there too. After you stick it all and let it dry, you can varnish it. Wha la… chair is done. I found some fish candle holders at real deals, 2/$1.00. I broke them off of the stick, spray painted them, and hung them with eye hooks and monofilament.

    Mom has done a chair and I’m also going to be doing more… so I’ll post when I have more info!

    These are really cool and your chair is so cute- it fits this years theme at school- fish (please send secrets of how you did it). This is a great concept.
