For this week's Wordless Wednesday with Sugar and Spice, I want to share one thing I DID accomplish on my list.
The work of Schoolgirl Style was the inspiration for my change. I purchased this set and I LOVE the color scheme! She has other AMAZING sets, but this one just caught my eye!
Instead of spending a ton of money on new baskets for my classroom library, I decided to give my few odd colored baskets a little spray paint makeover, too. Most of the baskets I already have are blue, so I think those will be fine with the color scheme. There were just a few out-of-place colors. I brought home this brown basket to use as my tester. I gave it a quick spray with the dark grey. I chose grey because I didn't want too many shades of blue on the shelf. I think this color will be a nice addition. I didn't do anything to prepare the basket. I just sprayed. The paint bonded well, but I'll let you know how it holds up during the year.
Have you ever painted plastic? Anything I should know before I spray the rest of them?
(I purchased the baskets at Target a couple years ago. I love them, but they don't seem to carry this exact style anymore. I'll make do with the ones I have.)
What is your theme or color scheme in your classroom? Have you done a recent makeover? Feel free to share your ideas in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!
