Monday Made It and Another Fab Giveaway!!!

Monday Made It!
Thank you to Tara for making me do things for my classroom and home that I wouldn't have gotten to this summer if it weren't for "Monday Made It"!
I Love Mondays!!!

I started with a plain chalkboard.

Painted the frame and added a ribbon.

Attached some twine and voila.
I made two. I think I am going to use one at home and one at school.

This one took a little more time...
We had shoe boxes in our mudroom until Real Simple came and helped us redo our room.
This has been sitting in our garage for the past year.

I spray painted the outside purple.

And the trim a pretty light teal.

I can't wait to put this in my classroom.
I have another one. I am going to paint it opposite colors.

  2. I have a shoe organizer like yours (which I definitely should paint because yours looks great!) What do you use it for? I feel like mine is to small to house tubs... so what else can I do?!?!
