This weekend the 5 of us went back to Charlton Vos college of education to complete our remaining hours. Friday afternoon we painted 46 cement tablets and painted numbers on them, while we waited for the tablets to dry we soaked the rock hard ground with water and dug 46 holes. When the paint was dried we layed the cement and filled the endges, The preschoolers now have there own numbered and alphabetized hop scotch course. Day 5 we sanded 25 desks by hand and then day 6 we varnished them all and waited one hour before doing the next layer. In total we varnished 4 layers. The rest of the afternoon we spent cleaning the school up where we had messed paint or dug holes, we also endulged in the "snoopies" delicatesants. This weekends photos were all on my phone and then my phone was stolen this afternoon before I could blog them. We will however try and take some photos in this week of our end product.
Today we worked a few extra hourrs at the school. We put some more desks tgether and sanded some spots which we missed. We then varnished each table and then waited half an hour to do the next layer, in total we varnished for layers of 22 desks. Next time we go we will paint their legs.
Today we did a good 8 hours of intense desk sanding and luckily no one was fatally injured. This morning we bought better quality sandpaper as well as some sanding blocks, varnish and brushes (we won an umbrella at the hardware store as a prize!!) We assembled and sanded 22 desks altogether. Tommorow we will be varnishing them.
