I'm linking up for my second Monday Made It at 4th Grade Frolics. I have pretty much completed my second classroom bookshelf. You might notice in the pictures below that there are a couple of spots at the top and bottom that need a little more white paint. I can't get to the bottom until we move this big boy out of our home office. Plus, you can hardly even notice it. And yes, I know I need to add one more dot at the bottom. I can't decide what color I want. I've been debating for a few days now. I'm leaning towards green. I made this one to sort of compliment my blue & green zebra bookshelf that I posted last week. I would love to just have a turquoise, lime and zebra themed classroom. However, I have way too many things that are all sorts of bright colors and I really can't afford to replace them. I definitely can't justify changing it just because of the color. So, I made this one so that it would match just about any other color that may be in my classroom. I just threw the colored baskets in there for fun. This bookshelf is typically full of books. I have approximately one million and one books! And these two bookshelves don't even come close to containing all of my books. I usually have about 6 bookshelves in my classroom. My new room is tiny and I gave away sooooooo much stuff at the end of this school year. I'm really hoping these two shelves will hold most of my books. I also have a couple of shorter shelf things that go along the white board. I'm thinking those will need to come in here pretty soon so I can beautify them as well! :)

I'm looking forward to my next project. I need to print things out, but my really nice laser printer died on me for the last time. I have decided to go back to inkjet. We had so many problems with the laser printer. I ordered a new printer from Amazon and I'm waiting until that sucker gets here before I get started. I saw a really cute idea to help organize my chapter books. Hopefully it will get here soon and I will be able to share my project with everyone for next week's Monday Made It!
