The Transformation Project is a CCAA program run in partership with Anchique and their Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan,. It’s an exciting program within the Delivering Hope Furniture program.
This program does a number of things:
1. It offers, through training and workshops, opportunities for women from shelters to learn do-it-yourself up-scaling of old furniture using Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan. This will help them to beauty their own homes on a budget and also gives them the opportunity to make an income on the side by refinishing ad selling furniture.
2. It offers furniture painting training and workshops to the general public. A portion of all the proceeds goes to CCAA to help fund the program.
3. CCAA is able to sell furniture that has been refinished with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan to help raise funds for programs. CCAA will also help women sell their painted pieces on consignment.
Because CCAA’s Delivering Hope program involves giving women from shelters furniture to help furnish their homes, only pieces that are not suitable (in rough shape and/or in need of refinishing) are used in the Transformations program.
