Classroom Reveal...Burlap & Black

Ok well it's not technically my classroom BUT I did create the sets.  In fact these pictures are actually a combination of 2 different classrooms in my building that used my Burlap & Black decor.  I am loving the results.  Ms. Durbin (whom I'm uber-excited is my daughter's teacher this year) from 3rd Grade's a Hoot wanted a change of pace from her bright owls...and well since I am no longer in a classroom myself {more on that in a future post} I had to get my decorating fix some way... so I volunteered to make her set. I am super happy with the results and well she says it feels so "zen!" Fabulous! Disclaimer: Please excuse the blurry pics.  Had to count on the iPhone for this one.

Burlap & Black

Well I avoided going to Mardel for as long could.  I had convinced myself that I did not need to see all of the new wonderful decor and did not need to add more to my already too large border obsession.  Then it happened.  I was actually going to grab a few supplies for an upcoming staff development.  A quick trip turned into a 2 hour browsing session of the newest classroom decor...just like I KNEW it would!!  I left completely inspired and abandoned my plans for the rest of the day to start a new classroom set.  This is what did it...

Oh that burlap! I won't actually have a classroom this year but I was too in love to just let it go.  I immediately began creating.  I was sharing my new endeavor when my friend Misty from 3rd Grade's a Hoot asked to take a peek.  She was in!!...ready for a classroom makeover.  Goodbye sweet owls...hellooooo BURLAP & BLACK.  Now that the sets are complete I can not wait to see how her room turns out.  Check it out.

And a few coordinating accessories...

You can pick these items up in my TPT store.

Just in time for the sale!

Back soon with pics of the burlap classroom, a birdie giveaway, staff development goodies, and my new office!
