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. ;)
