Spirit Decorating 2011 - Building a Better Hive

The book carts got into the act with orange tape as well. Note the Ditra around the picture on the left and on the door to the right. We also hung tools from some mesh attached to the door.

The picture was framed with Ditra (orange!) and blueprints of the library created the background. Note the toy dump truck on the desk.

"Go Hornets" written in duct tape on Ditra. We like Ditra.

Construction Guy was created from an orange hard hat, a safety vest, a broom, mesh, and various supplies.
