Little Libraries – Painting Day

I’ve been busy the last couple of days finishing up the wood working for the little library project at church and today was the final all church work day on the project.  It was mostly a painting day.  Here are a few pictures of the work:

Well that was a lot of work today and I am exhausted.  Next Sunday I’ll have an essay with maybe one or two wise sayings during the week.

If you need me, I’ll be in the living room asking why I agreed to this.

  5. I can answer that ‘living room’ question: Because you knew they’d come out so gorgeous. You had some amazing artists using your libraries as their canvas. Nicely done.
