Now that my classroom is (almost) in full swing and
beginning to to run a bit more smoothly, we'll soon
be spending some time in our computer lab. I'm in complete
back to school decorating mode so I thought I'd share
a few tips for sprucing up your lab and
taking it from drab to darling!
Like most teachers, I like to spend my time at school
in a room that makes me happy. Our drab little lab
needed some TLC to brighten it up and add some pizzazz!
I wanted to tie in all the black monitors and chairs
in our lab so a chalkboard theme seemed just the thing!
To make it bright and beautiful I used the
Colorful Chalkboard Decor from Carson-Dellosa.
I added this bright, bold board to highlight our lab rules with the
two-sided border and matching letters.
With some pop-out computer keys for effect!
Next, I made it cozy with some curtains!
I hung a 15 inch strip of black butcher paper around the top
of the window then used rolled tape to adhere a piece of
border to give it some pizzazz!
Add a few bright containers with pencils and scrap paper...
I love the mix of patterns with the primary colors and brights!
The two sided borders make the set quite versatile for a
black & brights scribble look or a wavy pop of primary colors!
Take your computer lab from drab to fab!
Here's a little peek at how one of my teacher friends used
the Colorful Chalkboard Calendar Set in her primary colored classroom!
She added stuffed butcher paper balloons and some twine
to give it a little 3-D effect!
Have a fantastic school year, friends! May you spend your days in
a classroom that makes you happy!
