I am back with my Made-it-Monday as sponsored by 4th Grade Frolics, and I am happy to say that I have completed TWO items!
First is my classroom window unit shelves. When I inherited my room, and I say inherited because there have been a LONG line of people in it before me, the shelves were gross. But, I threw my stuff on it and never thought about it again, until I entered the blogging world. After being inspired by Schoolgirlstyle.com I painted my window unit. Take a Look:
|See what I mean?|
|Not exactly gorgeous or magical!|
|From "yucky" tan to *magical* silver.|
|The Finished Product!|
The problem... Now, my filing cabinet, which never bothered me before, looks terrible. Since it meets right up to my newly painted shelves, I couldn't have it looking like a terrible eye-sore.
|Can you see where this is going?|
So I got to work on that as well.
Don't you just LOVE it? It has inspired me to continue to paint a few other items to work with my color scheme for the upcoming year. Keep an eye on my blog to see what else I have covered in PURPLE and SILVER paint. I really love how it came out, especially the purple.
My last task is something I spruced up for my blogging buddy Kelly. Only she doesn't know about it yet (shhh! Don't tell her). This school of fish used to hang in our main office and no longer have a home. I quickly grabbed them for Kelly's ocean themed classroom and hope she likes the final result!

So, it has been a pretty busy week, but I am loving all that I am getting done!
