As you may have read in my last post, it was time for some MAJOR change in my classroom decor this year! Here's a little peek into my farmhouse chic inspired classroom.
Over the summer I came across the most adorable shiplap inspired wood bulletin board paper at our local teacher store, and knew I had to use throughout my room.
This will be our reading board where we display any reading craftivities, anchor charts, etc.

I wanted the wood to carry over to all my bulletin boards to create consistency throughout my room.
Our district requires us to create a social contract with our students, so that will be displayed here.
Polka dot pom poms are from Hobby Lobby
This board will display any crafts. I will change out the words on the chalkboard and the banner to match whatever is hanging below.

This might just be my favorite wall in my room. It is right above our library.

I spent a few days this summer spray painting all my old Dollar Tree locker bins silver to look like metal bins.
I used the cheapest silver metallic spray paint I could find. Afterwards I sprayed a clear spray paint over them to prevent too much chipping. Hopefully.
Library labels are by Reagan Tunstall.
I used this organizer from Target for my centers last year and loved it. I repainted it gray to go along with my color scheme. I found all the bins at Target. Can you believe those cute metal ones were in Target's Dollar Spot?!?
This is my desk area. I purposefully left my desk out of the picture. It is a hot mess right now!
Everything pictured here is from Hobby Lobby except for the dice (hand me downs from my sister), small black and brown smile sign (Target), and the Good Vibes Only sign (Linen and Lace Shop).
I don't know about you, but curtains in a classroom drive me nuts! They get so disgusting with dust! This year I decided to not use curtains and go with something different. I found these tassel garlands at Hobby Lobby for half off and of course had to get.
Next up is my rug. I originally bought a flower one and ended up taking it back for something that could handle dirt a little better. This is actually an inside outside rug - they are much easier to clean!

When I saw my sweet friend Michelle Oakes' Neat Seats I knew I had to use them in my room. Y'all. They are good stuff.

If you already own these or have some coming your way, you can download the number tags here.
I changed out several of my posters to match my color scheme. You can download all of these here.
We have two white boards in our room, and every year I always go a little crazy trying to figure out how to make the extra one useful. It is too high for most of my kiddos to reach so it can't display anything that is too interactive. I decided to put my math word wall on it this year so that the math vocabulary is visible to everyone from any spot in the room. You can read more about how we use our math word wall here.
Here is our classroom birthday banner. I will just write the kiddos names and actual birth date on the clips. You can download this one here and the one I used last year here.
...and lastly, two bulletin boards that are outside of my room.
This one is right outside my door. I will display student work on it. I plan to change out the words on the chalkboard to go along with whatever is displayed. You can download the Welcome Back banner here.
Burlap is from JoAnn's

This bulletin board is in our grade level workroom. Choose Joy is one of my absolute favorite verses from the Bible and is something I constantly remind myself to do not matter what the circumstances are.

I am getting a few more things finished up this week in my room, so that I will be ready to greet 20ish new kiddos next week!
