Monday Made It

Yay! Another week and more school projects completed or in the works! I am once again linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics to share what I have been working on.

I am changing my color scheme to green, blue, and yellow this fall, so this week I dug into that more. I have bright yellow tables you can see in one of the pics below. I bought some fabric and asked my amazing assistant if she would sew me what I had envisioned in my head. I can not sew, do not own an iron, completely clueless with anything to do with sewing. But I knew what I wanted and my assistant was able to take the fabric and create just what I wanted! I LOVE IT! 

My next project in pinterest inspired from She's Crafty! She made it look so easy, I thought I could do it! I had gotten extra fabric and planned on doing it myself, but my assistant being as amazing as she is, took it and is helping fix them as well. I am super lucky! So as you can see this is still a work in progress, but with the rest of my room posts, I didn't want to leave this one out. I will post pics of the completed project once it's done. 

I redid my classroom borders with advice from School Girl Style. She has a great post on how to decorate without upsetting the fire marshal. I use fabric on my bulletin boards and decided to attempt the double borders with green and black. I LOVE the way it looks. Only sad part is I ran out of green, so I have to go back and get more to finish it.

Here is Michelle from Apples and ABC's she guest posted at Kindergarten Lifestyle with her cork board displays. I made mine this week. I plan on putting each student's name on the center of it to easily identify work once I get my roster in the fall. I plan on putting them on my back wall storage. Very similar to the way she did. 

So my next project is my love/hate one. I love how Maria at Kinder-Craze redid her Sterlite containers. So I decided to give it a try. I first had the hubby spray paint them blue! Easy! Next I attempted to do the scrapbook paper cutting and taping. It took forever and did not turn out the way I really wanted. She was not kidding when she said you will need a lot of time and tape. So for now they have just been painted, I might attempt the scrapbooking again. But for now happy with the blue. Not really but tired of trying to get it right and it not work!

Lastly I went by Dollar Tree one day this week searching for green and blue baskets to redo my library boxes. I didn't find what I was looking for but I did find the exact boxes I had bought some yellow and green back in the spring and they had ran out when I went to get more. So this time I got all they had 25! I know as teachers we have issues with any type of container. So with my new color scheme, I plan on using them for word work storage and maybe library boxes. 

The last thing I want to share is that I started my first linky party. I have a friend who recently found out she is moving from 2nd to Kindergarten and she was asked me a really good question. And with all the great teachers out here, I thought this could be very useful to someone moving to K or starting fresh out of college in Kindergarten. So I would enjoy it if you could link up with your advice!

So I am making big gains in my projects, I hope you are too! The sad/good thing is that for everything on my to-do list I mark off as completed, I check out everyone else's post and add to my list. But that's ok. We are going to have great looking rooms in the fall. See you back next week.

Looks like you have been super busy this week! What type of paint did you use on the cork boards. I saw these over at Michele's blog but had forgotten about them! Thanks for reminding me about this super cute project!!


Your projects are inspiring, I haven't done much of anything except cut up some posters and word wall cards that I'd laminated before the end of the school year. I love the bins from dollar tree, I'll be sure to check them out this week! And the double border is really cool. I wish I could get into my room!!!
