Once again, our own Eddy Shuldman is participating, taking on the challenge of transforming an eyesore into eye candy! Pictured here is the original chair that Eddy used. If you want to see what she has done with it, the project will be on display, along with numerous others, TOMORROW evening as a First Thursday event at:

Eddy will be there most of the time...and so will some of her students who created 2 projects for this very special cause. Additional chairs will also be on display at PH Reed Company on NW 11th/GLISAN.

The chairs will be on display at these two locations for a couple of weeks.

The transformed chairs will be sold at a gala AUCTION on April 23rd from 6-8:30 at Staver Locomotive. Ticket info can be picked up tomorrow at first Thursday, you can contact the Community Warehouse at 503.224.5721
