Oh my word. I am TIRED, and my kids aren't even coming until Tuesday!! We have been officially back in our classrooms for the past 2 days (well, I have been back in for a
I did one final project for my classroom this week and I just have to share...my old ratty rocking chair that I have had FOREVER (I rocked both of my babies in it...awwww) has been in my classroom for a few years now and was looking pretty tore up from the floor up! Here it was in all it's fugliness...
That TOMS sticker is the ONLY redeeming thing about it, poor thing.
So, I seriously got all DIY, and I did it all by myself, without ANY help from the Hubs, which is HUGE because usually I am whining and asking questions, and in general, begging him to do these types of painting projects for me!
First, I sanded her lightly and then spray painted her a BEE-YOU-TI-FUL turquoise color (Note to self... never spray paint whilst wearing your wedding ring without gloves. My hand and my wedding ring turned turquoise-DARNIT!!)
After she dried, I painted on white polka dots and a giant B (no, the B does not stand for butt, although mine will be sitting on it regularly. It stands for my last name!)
Finally, I... wait for it... MOD-PODGED her with SPARKLY mod podge (naturally... I can't live without my Mod Podge!) I'm so proud of myself!!!
Tada...introducing, "Blue Betty" the rocking chair!
Isn't she so purdy?? She looks muy fabuloso next to all of my Dots on Turquoise accents!
In other news, the sweet folks at MPM School Supplies allowed me to shop for some back to school items through their website! They were so easy to work with, the products came in a timely manner, and they have a HUGE selection! Here are some items I picked up...
|For writing colorful anchor charts!|
|So I can call on those kids who NEVER FREAKING RAISE THEIR HANDS!! Grrr...|
|I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Magnetic for my white board!|
|To practice our 1 minute fluency passages!!|
|These are triangle pencils for easier gripping!|
Well, that's all I got tonight, Peeps! Hope school is going well for ya, and that your new bunch of kidlets are fabulous~! I cannot wait to meet mine on Tuesday. Lindsay and I will be back this weekend with our classroom photo tours, so stay tuned!!
