So, then I was stuck.
With having to complete a project.
Luckily, I had brought a few things home with me to do based on some pins I had pinned.
The first one is from Maria at Kinder-Craze and the second one is from Stacy at Going Nutty!:

I have communal pencils and paper in my room. I know that some of you are like, geesh...control freak.
Yep, that's me.
I bought out Staples last year and still have 3 gallon-sized bags full of pencils, so this communal thing will go on for at least another year.
So, I have this container to house lined paper, graph paper and pencils. It's similar to this picture except it was a periwinkle blue:
Now, I love periwinkle, but that won't go with my new color scheme of black, lime green, hot pink and teal blue, right?
Anyway...here's a picture play-by-play (I forgot to take a picture of it before I primed it with white primer):
Now for the drawers:
I liked the polka dots on Maria's drawers and the ease of using Mod Podge from Mrs. Squirrel's drawers.
(OK, I like these girls' drawers...something's wrong with that sentence.)
So this is what I decided to do:
So I proceeded to trim it with scissors. Mistake.
So, then, I had to use mailing tape to tape down the edges (almost defeats the purpose of the Mod Podge...but oh well...at least it won't slip and slide.)
Once I finished those, I created labels for the drawers...no more pulling all of the drawers out until you find the pencil drawer!
Those labels, by the way, are my next project....everything in my room will be labeled like that. (Maybe even the kids!)
Now that the project is complete, I just have to find a way to hide this from my husband:
But then again, I just tell him Tara made me do it. (He won't know what in the world I'm talking about and will walk away stupefied.)
Now, go link up with Tara, y'all. I'm sure she won't mind if we all say Tara made us do it :)
