Monday Made It - Math Supplies Box and Laundry Room Makeover!

It's Monday again, and time for Monday Made It with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics!
First up, something for my classroom.  
I hopped on the chevron bandwagon last summer, and haven't looked back.
I was at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts a couple of weeks ago, and stumbled on an adorable chevron box.
It was 50% off (plus the teacher discount!) so I scooped it up.
I knew I could find some use for it.

I also recently got some new border from Creative Teaching Press, and used some of it to embellish 
the box a bit.

I had the flowers stickers, and the sticker letters are also from Creative Teaching Press.
The border is called Moroccan Nights (love that name).

We use Math Expressions in our district, and I plan to store our Secret Code cards in this box.
Currently I have them in a shoe box, so this will be a definite upgrade.
Here is the back of the box.

Next, I wanted to share something from home that's more of a "Planned It" than a "Made It".
I had my laundry room redone shortly after moving in my house this spring.
The previous owners had a stackable washer and dryer (which they took), and I wanted to get a 
side by side set.
I worked with a local plumbing company to redo the room to make better use of the space.
They included a spot for my dog's crate in the bottom center.
There is also a pull-out hamper in the lower left cabinet.
The boxes on the shelves are from T.J. Maxx.

This is a better view of the cabinets on the right over the washer and dryer.
I was overjoyed to get new appliances - mine are from Whirlpool.

I love seeing all the Monday Made It ideas!


  1. Jane, I loathe doing laundry, but with an awesome laundry room like that...I might make an exception! Keep those house pictures coming! Love seeing all you have created in your new space!

  3. I love both of your projects! I've been desperate to do my laundry room. I thought I'd get to it this summer but I guess not :( Yours looks great!
