During the two-day event, the Renovation Station located at 1800 N. Broadway Ave. will feature demos on furniture painting, restoration and repurposing. Nationally renowned Refunk My Junk Blogger Allison Griffith will demonstrate furniture-painting techniques and offer tips and tricks for completing projects 10 a.m. – Noon, Oct. 24. The public can bring a photo or piece of fabric of what they are working on so she can better answer their questions. They can also sign up for a chance to win a furniture-painting workshop gift certificate.
In addition, Rust & Rot Owner William Graeber and his team, who specialize in vintage and repurposed items, and custom built furniture and décor, will share design inspiration and answer questions about furniture repurposing and repairs Noon – 5 p.m., Oct. 23 and 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Oct. 24. Rust & Rot will have one-of-a-kind furniture and décor for sale with 25% of proceeds benefitting Central Oklahoma Habitat.
The Renovation Station offers new and used furniture, appliances and building supplies, such as interior and exterior doors, tile and hand-scraped wood flooring, windows, cabinets and vanities, lights, hardware, area rugs, paint and more. To help make the Yard Sale an even greater success, the public can drop off gently used household items at either store location or call 405-232-5592 to schedule a donation pick-up.
Gilliland says all donations and purchases at the Renovation Station make a difference. “When you make a tax deductible donation or buy something from the Renovation Station, you directly help a fellow Oklahoman, if even in a small way, achieve homeownership.”
