Do It Yourself
If you're crafty like me, you probably loving finding furniture at garage sales/thrift stores and fixing it up for your classroom. Take a look at the following articles for directions and advice.
Wingback Chairs- Recover garage sale finds with directions from this great article. I'm going to try to score some free donations for my Hogwarts classroom library.
Pillows- Fastest way to make your room look cozy and comfortable, and super easy! I'm sorry it's not in color, but this article has some great pillow hints.
Bookshelves- Make your own bookshelves and decide how high and wide each shelf should be!
Corner Shelf for Binders- Blow this template up at large as you would like your shelf base/top to be (Kinkos can help you with this). Trace the template onto two pieces of wood, cut out with a jigsaw. Simply nail boards for the sides, paint and decorate!
