Finally, I have found an awesome way to keep track of all of my bookmarks besides just the Bookmarks Tab. Pinterest. I swear I could spend hours every day on the site. It is fantastic, beautiful, and inspirational.

Teacher Valentines

I've never really considered making separate Valentine's for the teacher, but I'm thinking it might happen this year. Especially since oranges are only 18 cents/lb. this week at the grocery store!!

Class Valentine's

Now to get some bouncy balls from the dollar store this week...

School House Kitchen Chairs

I love the school house chairs-maybe I should start collecting them now.

Book Corner

Love this. Especially the hanging books. Fantastic.

Giant Kitchen/Dining Table

Someday we are going to have a house big enough that I can build this table. Okay, so Zak can build the table. I've been coveting it for a couple of years now. Perfection. Design Mom gives details for building your own here.

Drawer Hangers

When I can finally put a hole in the wall larger than a push pin, I want to make this wall hanger. You can use real drawer fronts, or just scrap wood designed to look like drawers.

Full tutorial from Design Sponge here.

IKEA Dresser Makeover

Top: Before
Bottom: After

Awesome improvement with just a little wrapping paper!! You can even switch out the wrapping paper to coincide with approaching holidays. I think that contact paper or wallpaper would work great as well! (Dresser from IKEA)

No tutorial, but some hints and tips at Living La Vida Rita here.

Glider Makeover

I don't love the fabrics on the "after" chair-but the concept is fantastic. You can pick up an ugly glider from Craigslist for about $25 and with a little patience, have a chair that looks brand new.
