I've spent the first few days of the month
working in my classroom,
sprucing it up before the school year officially begins
(for the students, at least).
I'm teaching at the high school level for the first time,
which poses kind of a decorating challenge,
especially when it comes to bulletin boards.
The existing classroom decor options
are way too saccharine for me.
I ask you:
why is it that none of my favorite scrapbooking companies
produce funky bulletin board borders
and fadeless patterned paper rolls,
preferably with a kind of schoolhouse vintage vibe?
Can you imagine how awesome that would be?
Until that glorious day comes,
I'm winging it
with my own funked up borders.
This morning, Z and I tricked out some white borders,
misting and masking and stamping.
Hopefully they'll look okay on the classroom walls.
I'm thinking of pulling together dictionary papers
for the background of one of my boards.
We'll see how it goes...
Any ideas for further ways to rethink classroom decor would be MUCH appreciated!
