A Work in Progress...

Today was the start of my MARVELOUS classroom renovation. Wouldn't it be nice if HGTV did a show about this? I have moved into a new classroom and wanted to spruce it up a bit it and give it that, Wife touch! Ha! I would have left it the color shown, minty green, but me being OCPD, only half the shelves were painted. That doesn't fly in my OCPD world, you know? So, I wrangled up the sister to help. (The brother actually came and helped too, towards the end of the day!- Thanks to you both!) We might, probably, shoulda, woulda, coulda, needed to use oil based paint... but we are living on a leap of faith! As long as it holds up this year and brings a smile to my face, I can deal with it. Hehe! We completed all the painting today and tomorrow hope to cutify (new word, maybe?) a bit. My curtains should be in tomorrow so I will definitely let you know how they turn out. I was going to be adventurous and paint the walls and that Wonderful rainbow but I think I have enough on my plate as it is. Maybe next year? Any offers to help??

You can see the two green shades best in this pic. Minty green vs. lime green!
The winner: Lime green! Yay

Can you spot the most wonderful bag in the world?

The sister posing for her photo op... Shouldn't you be painting?? Get back to work!

The reason we can paint our doors (because "I do what I want to..!"), JK, is because if you look closely at the pictures, we have courtyards with two rooms per courtyard. I share a grassy area/garden with another teacher. Cute huh? Do you understand? I didn't think so... I'll take pictures tomorrow to help you get it. This lady is slap wore out. See you tomorrow.
P.S. Linda it didn't work! Try the box on the left, FOLLOWER. If it doesn't work call Lauren. XOXO

  2. so cute!!!! I can't wait to see the final product!!! painting is such a hard job!! looks great!!

  3. Your classroom is very cute!! I think your students are going to love you!!! Good luck with the painting. I get excited to get color on things, then get in the middle of it and think what did I get myself into.
