Monday Made It

Linking up with 4th Grade Frolics once again. This week I did some "school" work. I made a few things for the upcoming year.

A teacher that retired this past year left me an old metal book cart {that I love}! 

This is my light turquoisy color... It took 3 cans of spray paint but I think it was so worth it. I love this little cart. I will probably be putting baskets on this with books over in my book nook, but haven't decided for sure yet. 

I have a few milk crates that look rough.. I mean really rough! They are old and mismatched and I just don't like them... So, I recovered them with some cute fabric. 


Now these crates are perfect for storing games and stuff. I am so excited about them! I think I have a few more at school that could use a recover... I may be making more! The tutorial to make these is super easy to follow... Click here!

I also have been working on stuff for Journeys next year. I made some word wall headers and word wall cards that I can use and organize for Journeys (2nd grade). 

I am working on some vocabulary cards too. I love having coordinated things like this for my focus wall. 
That's about it for now! Go link up so I can see your creations too! :)


  1. You've been making some pretty awesome things. I love your chalkboard inspired word wall. That seems to be the latest rage!

  2. Beautiful! Love that you are re-purposing:)

  4. Love the crates covered in fabric! Such a simple fix! I wish someone would donate a book cart to me!

  11. I love the idea of spray painting old metal school supplies. I have some paper dividers that I am thinking of spray painting this summer. The color you chose is perfect too. I am new to your blog and will be following for ideas I can use at the secondary level. Http://
