Monday Made It!

For the first time this summer, I am linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics.  I am finally done with my grad classes for the summer which means I finally have some time to do some crafts.

Everything I made this week was for my classroom.

My first craft was a bit of a fail on my part.  I had these locker crates that I was thinking of using at each table in my classroom.  I needed a yellow one so I decided to spray paint it, but I am not totally loving how it came out.  This picture is with three coats on the outside and two on the inside.  I used a whole can of yellow spray paint and it could obviously use another coat on the inside.  I may still get another can of spray paint and try to finish it, but I wouldn't hold your breath.  ;)

Once I was done messing with this, I started thinking about my table tubs and realized that I needed more space than these crates offered anyways so this worked out for the best.

Here is what I came up with for my table tubs.  (I will have a post soon all about how I use these.)

My last project was more challenging than it should have been.  The sewing machine and I were not getting along, but once I figured it out things were smooth sailing!

I don't have a desk, but rather a computer table.  The only thing I don't like is that you can see the side and I like to keep my DVD's under the desk.

I made this and attached it with velcro to hid the underneath of my desk.  Much better in my opinion. What do you think?

Now I just have to make my curtains to hide some of my shelving.  Hopefully, the sewing machine and I will continue to get along.  ;)


  1. Love, love, love the desk skirt to hide the DVDs underneath!

  2. I think it's kind-of amazing that a piece of fabric can totally transform a space! Your curtains make the whole area look more pulled together. I hope your sewing machine and you continue to get along :)

  3. What a great fix! I'm very jealous that your grad school classes are over! The one I'm in now doesn't end until school starts again, and another one starts up right away!
