Mini Make-over Project

When school resumed this year I found a sign saying “Free to a good home” stuck on the furniture we had in the reception area of our front office.  I quickly offered a home to the 2-seater couch and 2 of the chairs.  Even though they were covered in faded yellow corded material which was dirty from wear and tear and dusty after the holidays I thought they had “potential”.   I had also been inspired by some other Teacher-Librarians who had shared their LRC make-overs and thought we might have a go too!

Yesterday Mrs Collins and I tackled our make-over project ….we ventured off to Spotlight’s sale to investigate what we could use to transform our furniture.  We ended up buying some single bedsheets to do the job!  Back at school we got busy with our trusty wall stapler and scissors and went about covering our chairs and couches.  Here is the final result with two cushions from Target’s 30% off cushion sale as the finishing touches on the couch…

 Our make-over came to a grand total of $30.00 for our sheets and cushions and we think we have achieved our goal to create some comfy reading places in our temporary LRC!   We  hope you will enjoy these areas when classes resume in the LRC this week…

Let us know what you think of our new reading chairs and couch …
