Monday Made It :)

Only one more Monday after today for me.  Then, it's the real thing.  I go back officially on the 14th, but I feel as if I've been working all summer long.  Don't you?

It's OK, though.  My little classroom make-over has been a long time coming.

Anyway, I only have a few classroom "Made-Its" and the rest are home "Made-Its".

Here goes:

First off, my daughter {love her} made more clipboards for me:

We are now sitting at about 18 of these and I'd like to have 25 before I go back.  She's got some work to do.  {Hehe}

Here's something I made.  Hold on to your seats, folks.  It was tough.  I mean T.O.U.G.H. 

This is my lost and found basket.  It's for those pesky items that no one wants to claim. {That is until they can't find theirs...}

I almost broke a sweat making that one for this week.  I'm actually not quite finished with it.  It needs a tag.  But, I was exhausted.

Now for home.  I'm not sure if you remember, but I had lofty goals of repainting my bathroom and kitchen this summer.  Welp, the bathroom is now finished.  The kitchen...not so much.  The wallpaper is down and I have lovely two-toned walls.  But, I have only one week of summer left and I will not spend it painting.


Here's the finished bathroom:

The curtain is actually a shower curtain that I converted to a window curtain. 
Instead of a traditional towel rack, we went with hooks.  We have a pool and now my kids can hang (and reuse) their towels.
No more constant towel washing for me.

  6. You crack me up Elizabeth! Everything looks awesome, as always! I love that color for the bathroom wall--I've been wanting to change to blue for awhile now. What shade is it?

    The lost and found basket is adorable! The clipboards I'm totally jealous of because there is NO WAY I would be able to pull off such cute ones so I think mine might have to stay brown. I'll just hide them away in some storage 'til we use them, ha!!! :)

  7. Love love love the bathroom color.

  8. Haha! I love my lost and found basket! And last year I had a book "hospital" for them to put book in that I needed to repair. Did I repair any books last year? Maybe one. haha! But at least there was a place for them.

    LOVE the bathroom color! I'm in the middle of painting my bedroom. I had a giant list of things to do this summer... and well, notsomuch.

  9. Wow, everything you made looks great!! I really need to start making some of those adorable clipboards =)

  15. Seriously, I don't think I could make that bow for your basket. That does take some talent, ya know? My students would get the plain ol' basket. haha! Love the bathroom color:)
