Sneak Peak (Deployment Project#11)

So many projects and so little time!
Today, you just get a little sneak peak of a HUGE project I am working on!  Last week I decided I just could not live with all this white any more!  I had to pull out my trusty paint brushes and roller and put some color in just one room.  (I may not be able to stop there!)

Before and after pictures will be coming shortly
along with projects #12 - #19. 

We are halfway through our school year and I have to tell you, the kids are doing fantastic, but I am beginning to dread going into that school room!  It is one room that just has not had a plan and it kind of just keeps growing.  We keep adding stuff to the walls, projects and posters, artwork and rewards.  Basically it is just a jumbled mess!!!  It was time to organize it.  Time to make it a room that we all wanted to be in!

So I started with color on Friday night.  More on that later.  But today you get a sneak peak at a little over the bookcases vignette.  I made the ragamuffin garland last year and used it in my workroom.  But it looked silly just hanging up on the wall with nothing else.  So I tied some clips into it and added some "wow!"  I wanted to add some artwork and some vintage school inspiration.  So where did I turn to? 

The Graphics Fairy of course!!

Aren't these fantastic?  I just love the detail and the expectations that teachers had for their students.  Can you imagine writing like this every day?

I hope when we start back with school this week my kids are inspired and excited to be learning!  I know I'm pretty darn excited about our new room - - I'm even looking forward to classes this week!!!

I'm linking up to Graphics Fairy Brag Monday - - -
you have to jump over there today (she's sharing my bird pillows!!!!)

The pages your printed from The Graphics Fairy are a perfect addition to your garland (which I love). The vignette looks very pulled together.
I also love the pillow that was featured as your last weeks contribution!!

Thanks so much for playing along for another "Brag Monday".
