OCC Furniture Refinishing Class Begins Aug. 21

Furniture Refinishing PhotoHave a family heirloom or damaged piece of furniture you want to restore to its former glory? Learn how this fall with Olney Central College’s furniture restoration class.

The course, HEC 1198 Topics/Issues in Home Economics (Furniture Restoration), will focus on complete refinishing, restoration and repair, while addressing furniture stripping, staining and color matching. Students also will have access to professional refinishing equipment including stripping, rinse and spray tanks.

Loran Budde, who has been refinishing furniture for more than 40 years, will be teaching the course.

The class is ideal for beginners who have a specific item they want to repair.

“They will be able to bring projects in and we will be there to guide them through the process,” Budde said. “We will teach them the different steps and what needs to be done.”

The class will meet from 6 to 8:50 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Aug. 21. For more information or to register, contact OCC Student Services at 618-395-7777.
