Below you can see images of Ruby's room. Richard installed a really fun game on the wall pictured immediately below. It consists of rails onto which individual wood tiles slide. Each tile has a letter painted on it and, much like building blocks, you can slide on different letters and make words and phrases.

The fun part of the project was getting letters painted onto the tiles. He mailed out individual tiles to friends and family asking them to paint, collage or otherwise decorate a tile with a letter or picture.

In the following pages you can see what a blank tile looks like and the finished tiles that people sent back.

You can see the finished product in the picture on the top and a bit of the rug that started all this.
