New Bookshelf Inspiration

It's only 2 weeks into summer vacation and I am already envisioning how I am going to make changes in my room. Last year I tried to incorporate blues and greens into my room.  I saw this photo on Pinterest and loved it!

I have almost convinced myself to get rid of my teacher's desk and use my guided reading table as my teacher's area. However, I know I'll need more space for my "stuff".  I also want to have a bookshelf where I keep supplies rather than the rolling cart they are in right now.  So, off to Dollar Tree I went!

These blue and green baskets would look great in white bookcases like the one below.
While I was at the Dollar Tree, I went ahead and picked up a few school supplies and these cute bordered papers. 


  1. Those colors look great. I kept changing my mind last year about the colors I wanted and bought new baskets almost all year long. HaHa. I didn't realize how many I had until I packed up my room.... it's not pretty lol

  2. I have those exact baskets with pink ones too!!!Love those colors!!! The green and blue will look so sharp and be very calming too I think:) We had a K teacher do all greens and blues and everyone talked about her room all the time:) I'm sure yours will be amazing:) Love the paper...I'm gonna have to go grab some of that too:) When I feel better....would you believe I got strep throat!!!! Ugggg!

  3. Those are the colors of my classroom! I love the dollar store for baskets. I think they will really POP against the white- can't wait to see the final product! :)

  4. Hi Lana,
    I bought those very baskets at the dollar tree in my area this past August. I was worried that they wouldn't hold up during the year, but the kids treated them well and I'll be able to reuse them next year (if I don't change my mind about the colors). It's funny that we are in vacation mode but still looking ahead to the next year! Love it!


  5. Hi Lana! Love your library inspiration...that is going to be so cute! Thanks for linking up on my More Teaching Blogs page. I can't wait to see what else I can learn from you.
