Two teams from Xoomworks, Team Van Gogh and Team Da Vinchi. Each team taking ownership of a four story staircase at Surrey Square Primary School and the race to prep and repaint it before the students return after February half term!
On a fine sunny (but chilly Saturday morning in Feb), Team Van Gogh painting squad ventured out to support Surrey Square painting mission. Our task was to change our 4 story staircase from blue to green. Yea, that’d be a breeze – right!
All we needed to do is sweep and paint it freestyle… We were given rollers and brushes (love rollies!) and paint, lots of paint! It was a little painful sticking masking tape on every step so that we stuck to the boundaries. Sticking to boundaries however was difficult just like it is in life especially if you believe there is no box around you. Hope the school had white paint to hide fourth floor white wall sagas.
This was definitely a bonding exercise. Steve Jackson told us the history of how Xoomworks began as we painted, Nigel about how he met his girl on a tour around South America and moved to London to live with her (aoohhhhh), and my overalls from engineering finally came to use again. Would I do this again – for shizzle!
