The Beginnings of my Classroom Remodel

It's starting to come together.  My bulletin board paper, borders, and letters were delivered today.  I also found some great little baskets to match the colour theme at my local Dollar Store!  I've got to get in to my school soon - my dining room is starting to overflow!
All my bulletin boards had been orange before, so this alone will make a big change.

Funny story - last night I was out shopping for my current pinterest-inspired projects.  So I'm walking through Staples, and who should I see ... my sister - another blogger (Meet the Dubiens) and fellow pinterest-addict.  She was also shopping for some pinterest-inspired projects.  I guess we're two peas in a pod ... or two nuts in a shell ;).  Anyhow, she took one look at the supplies in my hand, and knew exactly what I was making.  So here it is - last night's pinterest-inspired project - I had originally pinned Sydney's at Lessons Learned.  I think it will look great on my door - I haven't decided if I want to add my name, yet.  What do you think?

But that's not all - I got the supplies for another pinterest-inspired project ... I'll bet you can guess what it will be!

That's right - I'm making three of those super-cute stools for my classroom.  I think they'll go great in front of my bookshelves - I know my students don't like sitting on the floor while they are looking for books, so I think they'll really like these.  I'm so excited about them I would've got started last night after I finished the wreath, but it was already a late night because it was my middle daughter's last soccer game.  What a GREAT first season for her!!!  So proud of you, Katie!!!


  1. I have the same baskets! :) Love them! I am working on my bulletin boards - but I need my two weeks off to get them done before school starts! I like your colour choices!

  2. I love the crayon wreath! How many crayons did you use?

  3. I don't know about the seats...what are those?

  4. Pam - I bought 4 pks of 24 crayons (cheaper than buying a 64 pack) - you also need an 8" and 12" embroidery circle hoop - I got these at Walmart.

    Science gal - check out this post about the crate stools:

    I'm (not so) patiently waiting for my husband to cut down the plywood for them ... I may have to do it myself, soon. ;)

  5. I just finished 3 crate seats, how cool were those!!! :)

  6. I think you may have inspired me to do the wreath too!!

  7. Jen-

    I love your crayon wreath!!! I've already started back to school so I haven't made any pinterest inspired projects (so so tired...), but I have done a pinterest inspired activity in my classroom (today). Will blog about it before I go to bed!

    Your daughter is precious! My(senior) daughter's 1st volleyball game is this Friday! :)


  8. Thanks, Shannon. I still have a few weeks to go, so I'm trying to get in as much as I can - I know I won't have the time or energy once school starts again.
    I HOPE my daughters play volleyball - I coach it, and I LOVE it. I just ordered a T-shirt from cafe press that says "You wish you could hit like a girl". Some inspiration for the girls during volleyball season this year. ;)
