As a means of cheering up their neighbors in lockdown, this English family spent six hours coloring in every brick of their home with chalk to create a “rainbow house”.
The Taylor family from Wellington, Somerset used dozens of sticks of jumbo chalk in order to decorate the front wall of their red-brick terraced house.
26-year-old mother Fern Taylor started the labor of love with her daughters, Arabella and Matilda. Her partner, Marco DeFazio, then used a step-ladder to finish the mission.
“We took inspiration from another post we saw on Facebook where they had done half the house, and originally that’s what I was going to do,” said Fern.
“But my partner said we couldn’t stop there and got the ladder out and said he’d do the rest.
“We used jumbo chalks, and it took us about six hours. We probably started with about 40 [sticks],” continued Fern. “The girls really enjoyed it. Matilda is two and didn’t quite understand, but she did help a bit.
“Arabella is four and was a keen helper. She helped for a good half an hour and then they sat and played and watched mummy and daddy finish.
“The amount of people who have stopped and smiled, or asked to take photos, has really cheered up. It’s so sweet,” she added. “People have slowed down while driving past. We even had an ambulance stop and say they loved it.”
