That's right! We have a big plan. Nothing quite as big as this, but big for us. We want to paint the ceiling of our laundry room in honor of Michelangelo's birthday, March 6th, 1475. This year the date sort of took us by surprise. All of a sudden, it was March 6th again.
Next year, we will have more time to plan. We will have cleaned out the laundry room, taken out any Spring Plantings that have already been started, moved shelving, all those getting-organized-for-a-big-project sorts of things.
Then we will whip out our brushes and a broad range of paint colors. We will wear our grubby clothes that we don't mind ruining, we will get out our ladders, and do lots of stretching beforehand, because painting a ceiling can be brutal on the arm and neck muscles, most of all.
And we will Paint.
I would like to see how many other mommy-blogger families, blogger reader families, and moms and grandmas and aunties and friends of kids who want to paint their laundry rooms too - we can enlist to join us in 2014!
Let's all get wildly creative and paint a ceiling in honor of Michelangelo. Let's teach Art History in our own Homes with vibrant relevance and share the pictures of our Gorgeous Works of Heart and Laundry next year.
This time next year. I'll send out reminders in plenty of time. Who's with me?
