About a week ago I posted pictures of my new hideous classroom, and I asked for ideas for what to do with the wall of bookcases which I need to keep, but which need some serious cutification. Yes, I totally made that word up, so please don't run to check my spelling.
I decided to go with the idea of creating curtains on individual spring rods for each section. That will require six sections of curtains total, and that's a lot when we're talking about money spent, but I decided to bite the bullet and make this investment in my classroom. I don't think I'm going to need to buy a lot to beat this classroom to death with the rainbow because I already have so much, so I'm pretty okay with that.
And SQUUEEEEEAAAAAL! I found the perfect fabric at Jo Ann's yesterday, which is making me feel pretty inspired right now. So inspired that I can't think and I can't drag myself away from Pinterest.
What do you think?
It packs some serious punch when talking about being beaten to death with the rainbow. When I found this fabric, my entire vision started to come together.
I will make two curtain sections with each of the three fabric designs so that the pattern alternates in each bookcase section.
Next, I'm going to line the bulletin boards above the bookcases with black butcher paper to coordinate with the fabric, and then I'm going to outline several individual bulletin boards with my very colorful monster borders.
I'm so excited, I can't wait to get started. I'm going to have to wait until August to see it all pulled together though, because the school is closed to teachers for the rest of this month and July. Boo! Well, actually not boo. It will force me to stay out of my classroom and enjoy my vacation. Yay!
