Project!

One of the enormous projects I have in progress at work is the clearing out of a classroom that we’ve been using for storage and turning it back into a preschool room. It’s more than that, really – the entire project involves adding a classroom for Kdg-4th grade kids, reorganizing our structure, etc. etc. etc.

But the fun part is redecorating the new preschool Sunday School room. I’ve got a dear older gentleman painting the room in bright blue and green next week while I’m on vacation (how diabolically cunning of me!). It will be the classroom Middle Sister teaches in, so she and I together are having a marvelous time planning the decorations and layout.

This shot shows only three of the eight weird walls in this classroom. Sad to paint over the cute little kids, but necessary for the update.

The room has an extremely odd shape to it. This back corner has a dark and isolated feel, but we have a plan. With lots of white-framed artwork and a variety of white-framed mirrors, we hope to open up the space and make it seem much more inviting and alive.

In the past few days we’ve been shopping around, collecting cheap white frames. Haven’t found just the right mirrors yet, but that will be a fun hunt over the next few weeks.

In a stroke of inspiration, we sorted through Middle Sister’s longtime collection of scrapbook paper, supplemented it with a few extra pieces from Michael’s, and went to work this afternoon cutting and arranging.

The final result:

REALLY looking forward to putting it all together and watching families “ooh” and “aah” as they bring their little ones in once Sunday School starts up again in September. More photos to come, as progress warrants.
