So, I have to admit that I am addicted to Pinterest... Have been for probably over a year and a half (since everything was one big board... remember that anyone??? How did we find anything?)
Then I decided to make one of my own. After months of stalking Goodwill (Seriously- why is it that when you don't want something, you can find millions of them... but then when you want to find a mirror with a space for words, they are nowhere to be found???), I found the perfect mirror for $1.98! Love 1/2 off day! Does your Goodwill do that?
Ummm... I take back the perfect part. It was screaming " scary old man shack" and was begging to be painted. It almost looked like it had taken a few tumbles with all of the marks around the edges. I pried off the back and took out the needlepoint.
Cleaned it thoroughly with soap and water and let it dry. Then I gave it a thin coat of kilz white primer, then 2 thin coats of the light blue paint. Printed out the cute saying, and less than 2 hours later- my mission was complete (the white spots are just light reflecting on it).
So, have you ever bought anything and changed it up for your room? Do you shop at places like Goodwill? Anyone else get an idea from Pinterest and modify it for your classroom?
