Welcome Baa-ck to Moo-sic Class!

 Our school's theme is Western this year. I teach elementary music, so here is my door!

Door is covered in red paper which I taped heavily at edges, the white paper trim is laminated. I hot glued the "hay" on the window sill. I printed the words on computer and glued them to a red laminated sheet. I drew the cow and sheep on white paper and used markers to paint on the cow spots and lamb nose/ears pink. 

I have 8 bookshelves. Here are 3. I used tablecloths and bandanas for shelf covers, alternating colors.

Getting rid of the TV, but here is my pitch ladder!!
Lookout for the snake in the hat!
My desk was ugly gray metal and has a big dent in the front. I covered it with cood look contact paper, from Big Logs. $5hot glued rope trim and burlap (I didn't take my time so it isn't really pretty), sunflower heads and the plaques were from the Dollar Tree. I covered them with blue paper and the sign in the center was a Fall fest one from DT also. I cut out a light wood look contact paper rectangle to cover the top slat and burlap to cover the bottom one and added my own words.

I covered these bookshelves with an old quilt look bed throw.


This wagon was handmade by an elderly man. There is metal around the wheels, the side container opens and the brake works!
book ends and candle cacti!


A start on my bulletin board. Learn the ropes (staff).

Bought metal sign with red paper to show it up.

I had the wood plaque already and added the pic from a music sale book.
