Heirloom Treasures Refinished and Restored
Placeholder Image

Have you uncovered an old trunk or piece of furniture that has been in the family forever that is in need of refinishing? If you don’t know where to start, keep reading to find your answer. I have hosted refinishing workshops in the past and have enjoyed the friendship and comraderie of others while sanding away on a special treasure.
This year’s workshop is set for Tuesday, May 27th through Thursday, May 29th. The best part of having the workshop at the 4-H building between Great Bend and Hoisington, is that the participants have plenty of space to spread out. If the weather cooperates many people move their projects outside to work on them during the day. Many of the newer strippers on the market don’t have the harsh odor like those in the past; still I prefer to work where there is good air flow.
The schedule for this years’ workshop is to bring projects out at 2 p.m. on the 27th. We will evaluate what each project will need, and plan where to start. The next two days will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, with lots of elbow grease needed by participants. There is a $5 fee to cover a few supplies that I provide. Several have already signed up for the workshop and I would love to have a full class.  Letters will be sent to those who pre-register. Call me soon for more information or to sign up at 793-1910.
