Wordless Wednesday: July 23 “Color Me Teal”

My sweet hubby painted my bookshelves last night.  It was the only major thing I planned on doing to my room this year. I’m trying to get rid of so much “red” in my room and using my blog colors like I did last year.
What colors or theme are you doing this school year OR are you sticking with the same decor as last year?

  1. That looks awesome!!! Did you use spray or regular paint? I painted the kids of my clear bins last year and you could see through. Now I'm wishing they were the old teal to go with my room. Do I scrape them or spray again? I love having a color scheme. Not a theme so much bc I feel stuck. Three years ago I was known as the ladybugs bc I had black and red dots. I stopped that quick. If I got one more ladybug knickknack. ๐Ÿ™‚ the teal looks great. I'm always jealous of the people that are allowed to paint walls, bulletin boards, and filing cabinets. We can't do any of that.

  2. That bookshelf looks amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚ last year I had a color scheme instead of a "theme". It was more calming and it looked so organized and put together, which helped my OCD lol. I would've used the same colors this year, however, I'm out of the classroom. Soooo…the beautiful teal, green, and brown teacher stuff/supplies/centers/EVERYTHING is in boxes in my garage.

  3. I love your shelves!! I wish I could paint the ones in my room to match what I have going on. Mine are all wood color right now, so they are fine. I am sticking with the same color scheme, pink, green and blue, but adding more chevron this year!! I love your blog colors!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This linky party is so FUN!! So glad to have found it, to link up this week! I'm totally with you on wanting to get all touches of RED out of my classroom. Can I paint the fire drill buzzer.. LOL? I'm sticking with the same color scheme: turquoise, black, and white – I'm sticking with that because it's my fave!!

  6. Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week – not only is it hump day but it is Wordless Wednesday – which means tons of pictures and questions to ponder! Love it!
    I haven't really have a color scheme in the past but this year I am working on unifying everything using primary colors – mainly blue and green (I know not a primary color, but I love it with blue) with some red and yellow. I love your newly painted shelves!

  7. They look fantastic! Right now I have a mish-mash of everything, but I haven't put much effort into it since we are moving into a new school with all new everything including furniture. I keep trying to plan for it but it's hard since I don't know exactly what we'll have. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Linking up for the first time. So happy I found this. I am enjoying all the posts.
    I love the shelves. I had to switch classrooms last year and couldn't take any furniture with me. Need to think about how I can bring in all together.

  9. Love the teal! You've inspired the painting bug in me…All I had on the agenda for summer was painting my teacher stool but now I can't stop thinking about the 2 ugly fake wood bookshelves (one with a Formica top, eww) in my room and how I can get them painted in a way that sticks and looks good. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Your shelves look great! I'm sticking with what I had last year which was a random mix of bright colors. Our walls are light purple and our carpet is blue (almost whole room carpeted) so I used bright colors to keep it fun.

  11. Love the teal! My main colors are teal, lime, and hot pink. But my room is a big mix. I wanted to redo all my boards with black and neon colors but with a very, very short summer… It's not going to happen!
