Where do I start? I sat down an wrote down lesson plan ideas for all grades and tried to map out the first few projects we will do for each. I don't have class numbers yet and my classroom is under construction so I can't get in there to really feel things out much. But I am getting new windows and sinks. I am pretty darn excited about that!!!
I started a few projects here at the house. A chair (for my desk), a coat tree (I can't stand jackets on the floor, they are trip hazards and it's the art room so there are a lot of spills), and a piece of wood (to make a sign out of).
I started by painting them all turquoise last week.
Then today I painted "Mrs. Campbell" on the wood and took a sander to it to distress.
I just added some ribbon (by stapling it to the back) to hang it with.
(yeah I match, it wasn't planned)
Next I took the sander to the chair to rough it up and then I recovered the seat.
I found a beach towel on clearance and I LOVED the pattern.
It was a cheap and practical "fabric" to use.
Recovering a seat is easy! All you need is fabric, scissors, stapler, and staples.
I just go over the original seat cover.
I love how the chair turned out and I have a bunch of "fabric" left over for other projects.
And then lastly I distressed the coat tree with the sander.
I can't wait to get into my room and start getting it all set up and organized!!
Here are a few of my other purchases for my room...Oh the possibilities
