While I love my overall theme, I still have the desire for something new and fresh. Enter new bulletin board fabric. My other half, Madalyn, and I took a quick trip to Hobby Lobby (Is it ever really quick?). Check out the fabric I bought!
I chose colors that stick to my Wizard of Oz theme, but with a pop of trendy design. The red ribbon is going to be the border for the blue chevron bulletin board. I wish I could remember where I saw that idea online. For the yellow polka dot fabric, I'm going to try wrapping it over the edges past the silver metal part, go without a border, and add a corner accent. This idea came from two cousins at The Newly Wife Blog.

Don't you love the studded border? It's made of pushpins! These two bulletin boards, a new floor plan, and getting rid of my teacher desk (yes! I took the plunge!) will give me that much desired newness for a new and exciting school year. Decorating your classroom for the new school year is like getting a new dress for the first day of school. It just puts you in a renewed state of mind. Wish me luck!
