The object of our hacking...
So many branches to be cut small enough to fit into garden bags!!
Snack time for some... :)
The finished product and the bags ready to be hauled away.
After all the chopping, hacking and cutting came the building of Ikea furniture (generously donated by Ikea Canada, the moving in of plants, flowers and planter boxes, generously donated by the Home Depot Canada Foundation, and the fluffing of pillows and cushions generously donated by Tonic Living. The kids came in handy as bench testers, support staff, worm-finders/admirers and entertainment.
This is where my photos end (nap time and all), but here are a few I have "borrowed" from Jen at Rambling Renovators to show the final transformation (and those beautiful Tonic Living cushions). Not too dusty friends!!
Lindsay if you would like to get involved in any way to support this project. I hope the ladies at George Herman House have a wonderful summer here - I know we had a wonderful time freshening it up!
