Getting Ready 4 Back 2 School!!!




Earlier I posted about my great Craigslist find... a really cool metal desk. I bought it for 25 bucks. Well I have transformed it to make it mine! Wish I had taken a before picture...sorry. This was done with spray paint. I made the zebra stripes with masking tape strips. The polka dots were made using a rather primitive cardboard stencil...haha! I think it is going to look really cool in my classroom this year. I also made a neat little canvas to hang in my room:) Using leftover thickers and acrylic craft paints.

I am a homeschooling momma and I want this desk. I would look so vintage cool sitting behind it, it would have to inspire me to be more creative. Great job and thanks for sharing
