Eco-Friendly Furniture Repair
Thursday, January 18, 2018
6 to 7:30 p.m.

In this demonstration and talk, Perennial's executive director will share with you some of the organization's tips and tricks to finding furniture, repairing joints, and refinishing surfaces—all with the earth in mind! You'll get info about where to discover the best "trash" in St. Louis. We'll leak some of Perennial's favorite spots to find discarded furniture, give you insight into the city's bulk trash system, and link you to online resources where someone else's trash can become your treasure. Through hands-on demonstrations, you'll learn about natural paints, stains, and waxes. Learn to add a pop of color to your projects with milk paint, mix and apply a fresh coat of Perennial's signature wood wax, and cook up natural stain from walnuts. You'll leave this workshop with the knowledge to add a whole new look to your furniture without harming the environment or compromising your health. Designed for adults only.
