The 5th grade traditionally buys a gift for the school.  Past years they bought the mascot mats in the front lobby.
This year, they bought a mural!
I don't think squirrels are very scary, but this is their theme...
Before, after I pulled down this sign that was DUCT-taped to the wall!  Horrible things happen to paint that is taped like this!  It pulls off the finish, leaves very sticky residue...
I did not have mathcing background paint, so strategically put some of  the lettering over the biggest wall wounds.  Should have charged extra for wall prep.  The head janitor, Ms Nancy, supplied Goo Gone, brown paper towels and a Magic Eraser that helped.
