Habitat for Humanity – Windows of Opportunity Start

I’ve recently taken on a project for Habitat for Humanity London‘s Windows of Opportunity. This is an event where local artists and businesses take doors and windows salvaged from the ReStore and turn them into one-of-a-kind furniture and decor items for the home, office or garden!

I have taken a three-pane window which will be outfitted with photographs representing London Ontario architecture as best as I can, which would be an ideal art piece for a local business to have in their office.

The event is to be held June 14th at the Delta London Armouries between 6:00-9:00pm. Tickets are $75 per person and it is a gala auction/reception with live music (Andrew Cole), food, and both live and silent auctions! Some of the sponsors include Delta London Armouries, Siskinds Law Firm, Libro Financial Group and Covenant Construction.

Here are a few photos of the frame in it’s current condition, and I hope to provide more updates as the piece gets refinished and finalized for the event.

Habitat for Humanity – Finkle St

I couldn’t say no to another Habitat for Humanity London invite to Woodstock, Ontario for a Dedication Ceremony on Finkle St. The house was built with only some minor touch-ups left to complete it for the family to move in by the end of the week! What a great feeling for them and a giant weight off their shoulders. A Woodstock city councillor, Jim Northcott was in attendance and spoke a few words of the unveiling as well.

Here are some photos from the event!
