Well, I am still working on labeling and organizing my “new” room. After hours of created one of a kind decorations, I think I can finally start finishing up my “updated” 50’s theme room. It has been somewhat a waiting game with a few of my displays. I have been putting off hanging them because I was unsure of this and that.
Today was a great day because…
my Smartboard was installed- Wooo Hooo!!!! Yipppeeee!!!!!! So excited, but now I have a very ugly area to the right of my board. Did someone say “paint”… I can’t decide if I want to paint or possibly put a small white board there. Hmmmmmmmmmm
someone asked me to post a close up of my bins from my previous pots. These are 3 drawer sterlite bins from Walmart and Target. I simply stacked them on top of one another. My sharp/dull paint cans are covered with cardstock. The black “sticker” box was spray painted and ribbon attached to coordinate with my décor.
A close-up of my behind the desk storage. Okay I understand I have an issue with “matching” containers and labeling. I think it is easier to find things when they are organized and labeled. I know I have been much happier this year because I can actually find everything. My bottom shelf still needs labeled but I am still sorting and putting things in their place therefore I don’t want to label until everything is complete and in it’s finally destination. (I love my $12.48 shelves for Walmart- Yes, I said $12.48)
Someone asked for a picture of my “Days of the Week” Here you go…
I loved watching “Happy Days” growing up. Chachi and Fonzie….. Oh so cool…… When I was trying to think of a way to make a display for the days of the week it hit me like a freight train. I said, “Hey Mom, I got it….(singing off key)Sunday, Monday “Happy Days”, Tuesday Wednesday…” Needless to say my mother gave me a funny look and I simply responded by saying, I love it!!! When we finally put it up she just said, “Now that’s cute!” It is funny to think I got all of my creative juices from my mother but sometimes I don’t think she shares in my visions or my wacky over-the-top gotta do it attitude.
