(Celina, Texas—Sept. 15, 2016)—Brooklyn Calloway is unwavering in the quest to set a new Guinness World Record for the “largest furniture restoration lesson (single venue).” Together with the Celina Main Street Advisory Board, she is hosting an Oct. 1 event called the “World’s Largest Furniture Refinishing Workshop” and dreams of landing in the Guinness history books. Right now, the current record for the “largest furniture restoration lesson (single venue)” is 250 people.
“I’m going to teach people on Guinness Day to take their old tired chairs and turn them into something cute, fabulous, fun and fresh,” said Calloway, the owner of Brookielynn's Bungalow, located in the Whimsy Finds retail center in Celina.
A drone is set to take the hoped-for record-breaking Guinness World Records’ photograph of workshop participants smiling into the sky, holding up their Junk Gypsy™ Chalk + Clay-painted chairs.
“I want to have such an amazing, epic picture that I am right there next to the creepy lady with the long fingernails,” Calloway said, laughing. The former Frisco Independent School District teacher-turned-furniture-restorer filed her Guinness World Records’ application in April and gained much-needed backing the following month.
“We are excited to partner with Brooklyn for this Guinness World Records’ event on the Square,” said Bridgette Bise, who directs Celina’s Main Street Program, which is providing police and fire services as well as other in-kind support. “We hope to be able to add different fun events like this as we grow as a community. It’s exciting to have businesses on our Square think outside the box.”
Celina is about 49 miles north of Dallas.
About the Record Listing:
The “largest furniture restoration lesson (single venue)” Guinness World Record is not currently available online. Guinness representatives say they have “more than 40,000 records in their database and try to feature as many as possible online.” If Brooklyn’s Record attempt is successful, it could eventually be available online.
