Painted Copy Box Storage

I had a pretty big parent conference yesterday. It went well, but it lasted over two and a half hours. By the time I got back to my classroom it was 10am and I was worn out.

I needed a brainless activity after school so I finally decided to tackle this bookshelf.


I did a lot of work in my room this summer and I ran out of time to finish this shelf. I had the office staff save some paper boxes for me. After the day I had, I needed to do something relaxing and fun. I put on my Kokomo station on Pandora and started painting. When the internet went down I pulled out my Phantom of the Opera CD. My student teacher was making fun of my music choice, but that’s okay!


I used acrylic paint. I bought the foam stampers from Michaels. They make it easy! This morning I took my overflowing drawers of center activities/task cards/games and organized it into my newly painted boxes. They are now organized by subject and topic.


The polka dots match my $1 seat sacks and this cabinet I painted over the summer. (More about that another time!)


I still have some work to do, but I am happy with how it came out!


In other news, I am working on my 100 follower giveaway. I think I’ve almost got it all figured out. If you would like to take part, leave me your e-mail address and I’ll send you the Google Form to fill out. My Math QR Code Game giveaway ends Friday. Be sure to check it out!
