After studying colors and their
effect on room lighting, the group
chose green for the walls of the
front hall, laboratory and office,
yellow for the laundry room and
pantry, and gray for the living
roo'm. Light blue was selected for
the bedroom walls and rose for the
adjoining bath. The concrete floors
of the office, pantry, laundry, and
bulletin closet took on new life
after receiving two coats of tile
red concrete paint.
When the cleaning up operation
is completed and the curtains are
hung, the girls will invite the pub-
lic to come in and view the results.
