My first Made it Monday

I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for my first Made It Monday!!!

So I had posted this picture on facebook last week to ask for some suggestions as to what exactly to do with this bookshelf that I've inherited.

Here is a picture of what it looked like before:

I went to Michaels (used my coupons) and bought some scrapbook paper, and Mod Podge.  I got right to work on these UGLY boring shelves!

I added a border - black/white to match my classroom decor and walla! :)

Here's a close up of a couple of the shelves!  It turned out beautiful if I do say so myself. :)

It's in a corner in my guided reading area.  The options that I have for using this are endless!

Here are a few shots with my baskets added.

It was a busy day setting up my new room! :)

Make sure to stop by Tara’s Monday Made It to see all the fantastic things teachers are making!
