House of Mercy

House of Mercy is hosting a free beginner level distressing furniture class on Friday June 17 from 5:30-6:30 p. m. The instructor, Eddie Hacker of HTG Estate Liquidators, is providing the refinishing supplies free of charge for patrons to create their own masterpieces. Participants must bring their own furniture piece. The size of the piece is important due to the room size limitations. Bring a nightstand, end table or another piece that will fit easily in the front seat of your car.

Hacker is a master furniture refinisher and expert in the field. The basics that covered are preparing the piece, applying new finish, paint techniques and distressing tools. This is a perfect way to bring new life to an old piece of furniture.

Class size is limited to ten people and advanced registration is required so the supplies are adequate.

Sign up by using the “Contact” form at the House of Mercy website (, or sign up in person at the House of Mercy Thrift Store.

House of Mercy Thrift Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m., and until 7:00 p. m. on Wednesdays and Fridays. The store is open to the public and is located at 8170 Flannery Ct, Manassas VA 20109.
