Classroom Makeover (the beginning)

School starts tomorrow for Hawaiian teachers, so it's time to get back in the swing of things.  I've been up to my room a few times to start working.  I got to move into a new room this year (yeah for no more sharing!).

But that means, I walked into this.  When I opened the door, I found this.  Not looking too bad!

But then I looked at the other side of the room and found all this piled up!  That's a lot of stuff that needs to be organized and put somewhere.

I haven't gotten much done yet, but I did at least get my bulletin boards covered.  I absolutely adore these borders.  I used flat black sheets from Wal-Mart.  Best part was that they were only $4.61 each.  I love hanging charts and student work on black backgrounds. 

I didn't get much done after I hung borders, because I have a billion books.  Seriously, it feels like a billion.  What in the world, will I do with all of these books?  There's WAY too many.  I pretty much left my room just like this today.  I gotta get really busy tomorrow and figure out something to do with these books.  Any suggestions?

Make sure you check back tomorrow, because I'm joining in a Hawaiian blog hop with freebies.


  1. Are those your books? Or were they left for you?? I used the same black sheets from wal mart!! You scored with that price..I saw it in the ad this week. When I bought them they were 10$ :(

  2. I never thought about using flat sheets for bulletin boards instead of buying fabric by the yard! Such a good idea!!

  3. I love the idea of using the sheets, too! Good luck with the book. I would enlist some helpers...

  4. :-) I just have to smile when I see other teachers go in to work in their rooms and make a mess first! Ha! It seems like that happens to me every time. Your bulletin boards look great! I painted the ones in my room black, but didn't make it to the one in the hallway. Maybe a sheet would work (and be less messy)!

  5. Sheets sound like a good idea to me too!

  6. Love the sheets idea, wow! I have black fabric (love the look, but love your price more!). :)

    I went in to school to work for the first time today. My room is 10x messier now than it was when I got there this morning. Sigh. :)

  8. So, I was in the process of rebuilding my credit. I was in the upper 500’s and after a lot of research I decided to go ahead and take a chance at contacting PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM even though many people didn’t believe in credit repair companies. I am a living witness that contacting PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST will raise your credit score. I am now at 802, 7 collections have been deleted. Good luck to anyone going down the same road I am. Let them know Janice Bonne referred you.
