Made it Wednesday

Tara at 4th Grade Frolics has been hosting a linky party this summer. Where you get to link up with images of the cool things we are making for our classrooms and our homes. It has been super fun to look through all the links and make notes about what I want to create next.

I did it three times. Brain chains and sun canvasesname sticks, and mod podge

But today is Wednesday. So I am too late for the party. Oh well, here it is anyway.

My classroom had a green chalkboard.

I didn't like it very much. So I painted it.

I love it now. It is black. Not a chalkboard anymore, but still magnetic.

The room also had a bookcase, circa 1970.

The best thing about this bookcase is that it was filled with books and tools for a teacher (me), left by the retiring teacher. I did not like the colors. So I painted it.

I love it now. It has black doors. As I was painting, my custodian came in and was very supportive. She wondered if I would also paint the doors under the sink and counter. I had not even thought of that. OK, why not?

Love it also. It is black. 

Also decided to pretty-up some plastic drawers with duck tape.

Duck tape is really fun. I used some black tape for border and to cover up an ugly board near my Smartboard.

Tomorrow...finish up some bulletin boards, and then get cracking on lesson plans.

P.S. Just saw that someone else linked up today. I think I will also...

Go visit Tara at

and see what other friends are (have) making (made).
Pin It!


  1. Looks like you went paint crazy :). But it looks wonderful - great improvement. And magnetic - cool.

  2. I love the improvements--and magnetic is so much better!
