Family Colour Every Brick Of Their House With Chalk To Create A 'Rainbow' Home To Cheer Up Their Neighbours

Over the last few weeks, people have been painting rainbows in their windows as symbols of hope, amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, one family have taken this one step further by colouring every single brick of their terraced home with different coloured chalks.

In a bid to cheer up their neighbours during lockdown, the Taylor family from Wellington, Somerset, spent six hours colouring the bricks at the front of their home, to create a 'rainbow house'.

They used 40 jumbo chalks on the red-brick terraced house, with mum Fern, 26, partner Marco, 28 and their two daughters - Arabella, four and Matilda, two, all getting stuck in to the project.

And the end result looks incredible, with the beautiful home coloured top to bottom in pastel chalks.

Fern explained it's been a huge mood-booster, with many people stopping to take photos or ask questions.

"The amount of people who have stopped and smiled, or asked to take photos, has really cheered up. It's so sweet," said Fern.

"People have slowed down while driving past. We even had an ambulance stop and say they loved it.

"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.

"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. 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."

We'd *love* for someone to do this on our streets - maybe a project for next weekend?
