Outdoor Wednesday is here!
Yea we get to visit all those wonderful sites linked together by Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com
Trying to decide what to post this week has been hard. All of my 4th of July posts were done last Saturday and Monday...what is a painter to do?
So this post is quite different.
I am posting one of my inside play grounds that was painted like they were outside.
When the church was planning on the new extension to our building the plan was to hire someone to paint all the children's area. When I heard the numbers that were being given, I knew we needed to step up and do this work with the artist that attend our church.
What a blessing to be able to give the church this gift.
Three of us painted for 15 WEEKS about 6 hours 5 days a week on a total of 16 room and the hallway, it was worth every hour each time I walk in the doors.
The church also has this open to parents during the week to bring their children in to play beside being used by the Sunday School 2- 5 year old department on Sunday Mornings.
Just loved painting the oversized animals and toys for the room. Most of them are over 4 foot tall. The baseball is 2 foot across. Doesn't the dandelion look so real?
One big question was what to do with the large windows that open into the hall for parents to check on their kids. Two tree houses were tthe perfect solution. One for the boys and one for the girls. Notice the Colts banner? On the girls side we put a cute kitten in the upper window some lace and chimney. One of the artists had a airbrush that helped give the great wood effects. While we were there the company that was laying the 2 " soft play floor saw all the volunteer work that was being done and stayed an extra day on their time to do the special effects like the blue water on the floor and splashes of blue under the equipment that was put in and the climbing rock. What a blessing to know our work touched these workers.
It's so fun to sit in the church cafe, that has a large floor to ceiling window that looks into this playground, and watch the children play in this area.
Hope you have enjoyed my indoor/outdoor post.
Have a Blessed week. Debbie
