The surf and sun are beckoning.
Nine days until summer break.
How do we keep students on task?
How about the arrival of teeny, tiny baby praying mantis?
It was amazing to watch. They do look horribly scary, though. 🙂
Removing them was a delicate operation as we didn’t want to ruin the wood paneled walls. Our carefulness actually doubled the outcome: the walls only needed minor patching and the shelves were re-usable.
With new crown molding, a bit of wood putty, sanding and two coats of paint, one section went to our daughter, the other to our niece.
I plan to use the other sections in a future project. I am so happy that we were able to reuse these wood shelves! Next weekend we hope to start on the hardwood floor installation.
Keep me in good thoughts . . . the natives are getting restless. 😉
Have a good week! – – Joanne
