A man in our parish is a talented artist, so the church commissioned him to paint "marble" on the bottom half of the walls of the church. A chair-rail was added and our rental building looks even more church-y then before!! My husband and one of the carpenters of the parish also added some height to the altar table and Table of Oblation and then stained the wood to match everything else a bit more. I'll post more pictures when everything is back in it's rightful place and the new liturgical covers and Christmas greenery are up!
I think that the white walls should be painted blue (like at this church), but I'm having a hard time convincing the priest... what do you think?
