Just substitute "classroom" with "speech room" and this is me! Now, the problem is that I added 12+ years of
I've started a couple of projects that I can't wait to use in my new room. (I also couldn't wait to share them!)
I found these really cute magnetic storage containers from Dollar Tree:
While I love the pink and grey, I'm stuck with some red furniture (you'll see when I can get in there and post pics). So I decided to go with a black/white/red color scheme. Add some duck tape to these containers and Voila! The red one looks pink because of the flash, but trust me, it's red. :)
Next, I found some great cork board tiles at Ocean State Job Lot (a New England store like Big Lots). I thought they were a little boring, so I added some scrapbook paper and ribbon....
Here are some close-ups:
I saw this cute idea on Pinterest from Keen on Kindergarten using oven burner covers:
I found some oven burner covers at Dollar Tree, but saw some larger pizza pans that I liked better. I bought those and spray painted them black. It's hard to tell the size difference here, but they're about the size of a small pizza (14" or so). I bought 3 in total.
I still have some other projects I'd like to work on as well:
Laura from Oh, How Pintearesting! posted this cute speech-inspired sign. If only I knew how to count! As I was looking at her page again, I realized I bought a frame with only 4 openings. UGH! I'll have to figure something out. (SUGGESTIONS WELCOME!)
And how cute are these clipboards from Mod Podge Rocks!?
I bought the file folders to make this awesome organizer from ReMarkable Home:
So much to do, so little time! Now to get in there and get organized!
What are you doing to get yourself and your room ready for the start of school?
