Classroom Chair & Door Makeover
So, the first thing that I wanted to work on was my chair. One of my precious darlings last year had messed with all of the controls to where the chair wouldn't go up, down, or anywhere really. The fabric was also itchy and a bit icky if I looked at it for too long. I went to Walmart and bought the first fabric that called out to me. 2 hours, my staple gun, and my mail opener later- this was my end result. It is so soft now- I love to sit in it (when I can, which is normally for just a few minutes while I eat my yogurt when I get to school.
Now my door was a whole different story... this door and I wrestled for hours. I kept sending my sis in law pics and she was giving me advice. I ended up putting more of the border around the door handle and door stopper... will post pics when I post my classroom pictures next week. Sorry it is a little blurry!
