What I did on my work day…

Today several of my colleagues and I redid the teachers lounge. Wish I had before shots because this was so plain and dull. We painted a wall orange/red and put a saying and wall applique, we covered the bulletin boards with pale yellow fabric and framed the harsh metal trim with a wood frame, we decorated above the counters with antiques and coffee items and added little tins to the tables for napkins and salt & pepper, them we did a final cleaning. I hope this will provide a calm environment for the teachers to have lunch- it is a much improved place to be!
