back to school...

is WAAAAAYYY too close for comfort.
i learned at the end of last year that i was being moved from 2nd grade to 5th.
so, in preparation, i've been making some of my own room decor.

i've been scouring thrift stores for old atlases and maps, which i've been using to cover anything that will stand still.

dollar spot black office passes...turned hall passes.
$1 michael's wood cut outs...turned bathroom passes.
and a fun #5 just because.
i've also been collecting cheap tins.
painted them white so the patterns wouldn't show through...turned pencil, pen, and marker cups.

Cutest things EVER! Way to put your own spin on things that could be "blah" if left to their own devices.

How gorgeous--I picked up an old atlas last year and have been meaning to do something with it--I think I just found it. :)
