We’ve got back to school on our minds now! Only 2+ weeks left until the kids go back, and I’m really torn about it. I truly love to have them around, and I’m going to miss them loads…but I do love back to school too!
I love the routine, and the start up of all the activities again! And don’t you just love doing all the Back-To-School shopping?! It’s one of my fave things!
Anyway, I’m way off topic…what exactly does the above little gem have to do with Back-To-School anyway? Well let me tell you!
So this week while dropping off a load of stuff to goodwill, I had to go inside and see if there were any treasures just waiting for me! And I found this:
Not much too look at yet. Not my colour scheme or style.
But I could envision something – it screamed ‘School Grand Central Station’!I don’t know about you, but with school, comes loads and loads of papers, books, notices, agendas…that always end up in a bottomless basket in the kitchen!
In comes this handy-dandy little organizer.
I spray painted it with a few coats of RustOleum’s White Paint in Gloss. (because everything looks better in white doesn’t it?!)
Added a gorgeous knob from Anthropologie…and now I have a sleek and fun school organizer!
It has a cute little drawer for pencils & homework tools, and the never-ending junk.
Lots of space for agendas, home reading books, notices…
I really love it when you find something inspiring! It’s hard for me sometimes to see the potential in things at thrift stores, but I go in trying to imagine how something might look with a coat of spray paint!
I just knew I could rescue this little number! Too fun!
