Mermaid Classroom Reveal

My room is about 95% finished.  It isn't at all what I expected when I began making the mermaid room sketches.  I began by thinking about my old classroom layout.  This new room is like a whole new world.  Nothing really turned out like I planned, but I went with it.

I'm going to link up with Swimming into Second and a Classy Collaboration to see what other people think about it. 
Do you love it, do you hate it?
What would you change?
What should I add? 

 I finally got to use my cute mermaid from Cara Taylor!  I love those lil' beauties:)

  A huge Thank You for Erin from Lovin' Lit for making me Mermaid Papers and Embellishments to go with it.  I love these cute circles for my table caddies!
 No chairs yet...and my tables need to be raised for 5th Graders.  
But, I LOVE having tables not desks!
 I plan on using these cabinets for birthdays.  
I will put shells with each student's name and their birthdate on the month. 

Since my students will normally have a different schedule, 
I plan on putting out lunch time and our release time on the clocks beside the clock.  
I LOVE my rules poster from Vistaprint!  AWESOME.  

This Little Piggy is still working on the mermaid for the library!  Pics this weekend, hopefully!

Your room/theme looks fantastic. The mermaids and colors are so pretty and I am very envious of all your cupboards. Can't wait to see the rest!

That mermaid theme is terrific! I've never thought about that theme before. I'm particularly loving that fish scale background. So clever!! You did a great job!

Thanks ladies ~ I love my mermaid theme. There are a ton of cabinets and I have to be grateful, but I wasn't planning on having cabinets when I planned my room.
