Volunteers under the vault

.
Fun with "V" today for ABC Wednesday.
.
Very old vaulted ceiling being made whiter.
.
Volunteer friends from Arkansas spent half their vacation in Israel scraping, schpachteling, sanding, and painting.
The three of us did the work for neighbor friends last summer.
.
Volunteers Mark, Kristine, and Dina make the V for Victory sign.
Victorious under the now-white vault!

I hope you kept your hats on - painting that vault might leave its marks, so to speak...

Thank you for the nice comment!

Photographer Rune, shalom. Oh yeah! I always work with a hat on, especially when painting. You're right, I don't need any more white on the hair.

What great friends to help with the painting. Wonderful fun post for V day.

A sad (to me!) reminder that I have to do this here. I'll wait the good season...

Be careful, Dina! Painting 3 bedrooms, walls and ceilings, after scrapping wallpaper, glue-goop, ect, is how I tore my rotator cuff. I'm still doing physical therapy until I get reasonable motion back.

The result looks very impressive.... as do the painters!

I found you from Around the Island. I love your site. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

All of you seem to like what you are doing just for doing it.
