A long time ago, in another state, I used to be a children’s librarian. It was truly my most favorite and the most rewarding job that I have ever had.
Last year my best friends daughter became the librarian at Erma Nash library. She asked if we would consider painting the walls in the library. I couldn’t say yes fast enough!
We only had two weeks to get a lot of painting done. Roxanne and I painted as fast as we could, but sadly, didn’t get everything done. Fast forward one year and we are back to finish the job!
If you missed what we painted last year, you can see them here. These are just a few things we painted last year.
Don’t you just love those bright red, sparkly boots and the purple hand bag?
The giving tree is just the sweetest!
The Lorac is one of my favorite characters.
Erma Nash elementary has a large Spanish speaking enrollment. Because of this, it was only natural that we would add some characters from the Spanish book section.
Ashley, the librarian, chose some really fun books for us to paint. Esperanza Rising, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, and Magic Moments just to name a few.
We are almost done painting. Just a few more titles on the spines of the books need painting. I don’t know about you, but I would have loved a mural like this in my school when I was a child.
Working on the Erma Nash library mural has kept me so busy this past week that I haven’t gotten much else done. I’ve been ignoring all of the paint projects that were on my calendar for this week. However, I’m not complaining. Painting and reading are two of my most favorite things to do! I’ve been in heaven. Besides, those projects will still be patiently waiting on me next week.
