As summer starts to wind down, I thought I’d share a little bit of my former office decor back when I worked on the Virginia side of DC. It was a cute little office, if I do say so myself… To all of my fellow educators, I hope you’re as ready to see your kiddos as I am!
I am far from an artist, but I absolutely need to have a beautiful space to work in. It keeps me sane. It makes my life happier.
So, when I first started pinning school office decor ideas, I knew I eventually had to incorporate chalkboard art.. Then, I chickened out. I didn’t think I could do it. Alas, one day I womaned up, had my phone with an example in one hand and a piece of chalk in the other, and ta daa! Chalkboard art. God bless Pinterest.
I always make an effort to decorate for Christmas. Aside from the obvious celebrating the Lord’s birth, I also absolutely love how excited the students get during this time of year.. Sure, they’re bouncing off the walls (and I constantly remind them that Santa is watching), but it’s a sweet time of year… And, let’s be honest, every girl should have a pink Christmas tree at some point in her life..
If I do say so myself, I really like the posters… I made them myself (#modesty)… Fun fact: if you really like a quote, generate it on a program and simply print it from a place like FedEx Office or Vistaprint. The frames are from Ikea.
Here are the quotes:
– “The word reality is to the word education like destination is to a journey.” – Fr. Luigi Giussani (From The Risk of Education)
– “Let us read and let us dance; these two amusements never did any harm to the world.” -Voltaire
– “Keep Calm and Read On”
– The rug is from Ikea (less them $20.. And they’re still there)
– Blue chairs are from Target (last spring)
– Alphabet is from Hobby Lobby
What does your work space look like? Does it keep you motivated? I hope so!
Almost two years ago now, my dear friend from college called to tell me she…
I kind to hate to admit this, but for well over a year, I have…
