My eye may have been twitching all this past week due to stress but I am BACK for Monday Made it! My hubby was drafting his team for fantasy football last Friday so I had a few "me" hours after the kids went to sleep Friday night. I actually have completed the craft to-do list that I started back in June! Can I get a woot woot?!
I am *so* super excited about these crafts, and now I can finally take completed classroom pictures to share with you all!
First I made the READ letters that you've seen all over Pinterest! (Mine were mostly Tara inspired :)
Then I made a snazzy little cork board for my personal pictures behind my desk. This one is Abby inspired.
I found the cork board tiles at Hobby Lobby - they come in a pack of 4-12x12 tiles and fit together like this picture. I taped off chevron stripes (just eyeballed it) and started painting!
I applied 2 coats - the board is dark so the green didn't completely cover it after one coat. I peeled the tape off before the paint completely dried so it didn't take any paint with it. There are a few edges where it seeped through, but it gives it character - the cork board is naturally not "perfect" You really only see them if you look super close.
I'm so excited to hang them up and take pictures of my classroom! Now head on over to Tara's blog to see what everyone else has been creating this week!
