Monday Made It and Classroom Pictures Day 3

What's Up Y'all?  It's Monday and I'm linking up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for her...

I made over a raggedy book shelf of mine that a friend fixed for me after a parent sat on it last year.  What would possess her to think that a little old shelf would make a great seat...needless to say it did not hold her...

 I cannot believe I went all year with this shelf looking like this...smh
I used red duct tape on the top and around the edges...
 A few minutes new...a very nice improvement...
It looks so much better!!
Day 3
  I went in last Thursday, but they were touching up the wax in the hallway and I couldn't get in my room. I was able to get a little bit more done in my room today.  
Now for a few more pictures.
 My made over shelf with the group book boxes.

This is where students will put there H.O.R.S.E Books.

 Classroom Library with books...still have to put my tables in there.

I still have a lot more to do!! 
I'm Out!! 


  1. Your Reading Ranch is the cutest!!!
    I love all the bright colors in your room.
    Looks like you have a lot finished to me.
    I've only been in my room twice so far and I usually end up talking my time away rather than working;)

    1. Hi Heather,
      I am the only person at my school working in their room right now!! I like to get in early and get it I am really glad no one else is there to distract me!! I didn't get to finish decorating everything last year the way I wanted so I am taking advantage of the fact that I am able to get in their early!!

  2. Love the duct tape on the bookshelf. Not only does it look good, but also gives it more strength...hopefully nobody sits on it again :(

    1. Hey Erin,
      I like the fact that the duct tape does give it much more support...

  3. Oh Crystal...I am so envious right now! Your room is so adorable!!! I can hardly wait to get in mine! Your shelf looks great...the red really makes it pop! goodness, what parent would think they could sit on it...good grief! Hopefully that won't happen again! Nice work...:)

    Blessings, Vicky

    1. Hello Vicky,
      Thank you...My western theme is still growing on me...but I think it did turn out cute...I will be hitting up Hobby Lobby to see what else I can find...I want a small throw rug for my doorway...This is the first time since I have been at this school that I have been able to get in this early.

  4. Your bookshelf came out great - I never would have thought of using duct tape to redo it!

    1. Hi Kelly,
      Thank you!! Duct tape sure comes in handy!!
