I have been in my classroom for nine years. I have NINE years worth of treasures and dust in my little classroom. I spend so much time in room 203. I want it to be BEAUTIFUL! I keep seeing this logo in the school supply catalog...
I want MY perfect classroom! I don't want my room to feel like a yard sale (lots of mismatched junk). I have decided to start working on building my dream classroom. How exciting is that??? After nine years, I need to show my room a little love. It keeps me motivated and excited about going to work. I am really going to work on this a lot over summer break, but I started it during spring break.
My first pet-peeve is all the colors of wood I have in my room. I have light oak, dark oak, white, birch, and maple. I decided to go with maple and birch. These woods are very similar in color. I like how light it is.
|See the color problem? Hate it!|
|This is all the awesome stuff that came off my shelves. See why I need storage?|
|All loaded up and ready to go!|
|I can't wait to get counters on!|
My lower cabinets will not be "installed" in the school. They will be attached to each other, and I will be able to take them out of the classroom if I choose to. The upper cabinets will need to be attached to the wall, but the installers said they can be easily removed. I am so excited to be doing this in my room! It feels like a gift to myself. I know that I could have spent the money on so many other things, but to be honest, I would WAY rather have a nice classroom than pedicures and coach purses. I am kind of a dork like that! I will keep blogging about the progress. Hopefully it will turn out to be MY perfect classroom!
