Old Art Transforming

It took us four days to paint the Old Art Room as the walls are
all tongue and grove boarding. 
Mum was drafted in to paint cupboards and the shelves.
These shelves turned out to have a story.
The room was a woodwork room before it was an Art Room 
and Harry Carter, relative of Howard Carter used to
teach wood work in here and he had made the shelves so 
all the tools could be neatly put away in the cupboard!
His wood carving is all around Norfolk including
 the Swaffham sign and in the church.
Before the Art or Woodwork room, when first built it was a Gym!
That accounts for the sprung floor!
