One thing you may not know about me is that I teach Junior High Sunday School with my hubby. We attend a small Presbyterian church and usually have 5 or 6 kids, 6th-8th grade. Because our class is small, the junior high kids have always met in a teeny tiny room that seriously could be mistaken for a closet. In fact, people used to just throw things in there if they didn't know where else to put them. Broken audio equipment, old ripped up books, just junk. It was a mess.
So last fall we got the idea to let the kids spruce it up! We totally emptied the room (and filled the dumpster out back!) let the kids choose the paint and put them to work.
We bought them new furniture... a storage cubby for one wall, smaller tables that can fold & be put out of the way, stackable chairs. It's amazing how much bigger the room seems now. Oh, and I made them some big floor pillows for days when we just don't feel like sitting in chairs!
Lil Twister quilt? Well it's perfect with their lime green wall.
