Monday Made It July 8th

 I'm still not able to get into my classroom and I've got to plan and pack for two big trips this week, plus put together a two day professional development presentation.  Oh and attend a day of training in between :).  

So I've been tinkering around with silly stuff, like redoing my toolbox to better match my color scheme.

 I used scrapbook paper and these super helpful pos it labels (garage sale for a quarter)!

I also painted a wooden bookshelf black to match the other furniture in my classroom.

Oh my goodness I must explain why I'm so late in linking up today.

 This morning I saw this little beauty sitting on the curb and I just had to rescue her.  :) A fresh coat of paint and now she will fit right into my classroom.  

Last but not least in prep for my travels to Florida I snagged this rolling brief case.  It was a little plain and the handle was broken.  So one staple gun and a cute scarf later Viola!

  1. LOVING what you did with your teacher toolbox. Loving the desk you picked up on the curb - someone else's trash is a teacher's treasure :)
