This Summer has flown by. My kids go back to school in just a couple of weeks. And I always struggle with keeping everything organized. So this month when Lowe’s gave us the topic of Back To School – I knew I wanted to create a Back to School Organization Station to help us stay on top of things this coming school year. And something that I love about this project is that it’s portable. So if you live in an apartment or rent a home, you can make this project up and then take it with you when you move.
I also love that you aren’t damaging any walls with hooks or nails. Plus, it’s easy to make. I wanted to add molding to the outside of the door to give it a board and batten kind of look. So I was so excited to see just what I was envisioning in the screen door section. All I had to do was take the screen off and for about $20 I got the look of board and batten for this project without having to buy wood and make all of the cuts. Yay!
Here’s how I created this Easy Back to School Organization Station:
I love a good challenge. It really lets me stretch my creativity!
So when Krylon contacted me and asked me if I would make a project using 4 completely different spraypaints – I was excited!!
Here are the colors they sent me — Shimmer Metallic Green, Citrus Green, Pink and a Natural Stone finish. I wondered what I could create in one project with all of these different colors and finishes. So I headed down to my favorite local thrift store to see what I could find. After scouring the store, I found some old, beat up clipboards in different sizes. I thought they would be perfect for a little spraypaint makeover. And my office at the #1905Cottage needed a little place to hold inspiration quotes and pictures. I thought they would be perfect!!
