My room is about 85% finished, so I don't have final pics just yet (maybe next week). Below are my beginning pics. But, I'm excited to show you a little bit of what I've been working on.
Below you'll see the harvest orange wall. It actually didn't turn out sooo bad. Not NEAR as bad as I originally thought.
Next year, I plan to paint it deep grey/blue.
I got rid of the enormous teacher desk and got a trapezoid table for my computer. It's so much cleaner looking!
You can't see it well, but I painted the corkboard behind the computer. I've had that corkboard for YEARS (well over 10) in my garage. I painted it teal blue called 'laguna'. I ran out (oops). So, my friend had turquoise...I painted over the teal and it actually gave it a grungy "burnt" look. I love it. I added chevron ribbon for the criss-crosses and I plan on keeping my own kiddos' pics there. Oh yeah, I ran out of ribbon so I trimmed it in my lime borderette.
Do you have IKEA bags? If not, the next time you go get 5 of them.
Yes, 5. Two for home and 3 for school.
They are huge, they never come apart and they are Ahhh-some.
They are absolutely perfect for carrying lunches or snacks on field trips! In the pic they are my trash bags so I can walk out to the dumpster and just empty them:)
What's this you're asking? It's my "idea" of my mermaid drawn onto a friend's whiteboard.
Does anyone else do this? I had to get it out of my head and onto "paper" (a.k.a. whiteboard).
She's in the library area and I plan on calling it Reading Cove.
