Quandaries, Plans, and Transformations!

Dear Bloggy buddies! 
I am looking for some help. First- how do I get my hubby from snoring louder than the TV?  I know it's never going to happen.
SO! Remember the pictures I posted of my new room here
Well the carpets are now cleaned and I can start moving things back in (after some dusting) Anyway, I’d like to paint one wall-the one that is behind my whiteboard. But I don’t know what color to choose.
In my old room my BIG wall had a tree painted on it, and I had sponge painted the wall blue. I think for the new room/wall I’d like to do something bright!
I’ve thought about red or orange, but I don’t want to excite my little darlings too much. And I thought yellow or turquoise would be niceor a green. The rest of the walls I’m just going to leave the dingy white they already are (I’m not that ambitious) but I will give them a good scrubbing.
I would also like (or find someone) to paint  a vine going up the wall to the right of the whiteboard.
And then there is the placement of shelves and writing workshop area, file cabinets, and tables. My first thought is to put my reading table where the nasty sink is now (my hubby is removing that for me).

So those are my quandaries any ideas, thoughts, or insights from your creative minds?

Did I mention if I decide to use your idea you could win a FUN summertime treat????

Leave your comments below. I will be anxiously awaiting you expertise!

P.S. This Wednesday I am attending another workshop on the Common Core. After that my plan is to do a common core post every Thursday highlighting one core a week, with thoughts, ideas, activities, and freebies to go with it. At least that's the PLAN! 

P.P.S.S Be on the lookout for my super cute and cool transformation in the blogging world!

Happy Weekend!


  1. I'm thinking green, but I'm really of no help I'm afraid. I'll just be looking forward to pictures when it's all complete. Good luck!

  4. Hi Tammy, what fun to completely make over a room! I, like Lisa above, like the idea of turquoise and green & with your vine, maybe on the turquoise, it would look nice. One of my colleagues who teaches in Primary did a slant with two colors. It looks good. As for the other things. I had big metal cabinets behind my desk, like your file cabinets, but the ends were used for magnetic stuff. Don't forget that use of the file cabinets. I rearranged my room almost every year I think until I got it right. So maybe you can try some things, then move them as you watch the students. Have fun! I wonder what you're planning for your blog-hm-m-m?

  5. I would looooooooooooooove to completely redo my room too! I think a blue would give a pop of color but still give a calm atmosphere!! Good luck with the redo!

    Happy Memorial Day :)
