A Quick Fix!

Way back in August I gave my new classroom a makeover, painting the bookshelves and radiator that lined two of my walls. I still love how bright and beautiful it is, and how it makes the space feel, but there have been a couple of trouble spots that I'll have to patch up in the summer. One of those is the spot where I've been storing my class set of clipboards.
I was lucky to inherit them, but between the crate being pushed around, and the kids not being super-careful putting them away, look at what has happened...
Booo.... :'( I will have to repaint this section, but at least I shouldn't have this problem next year! I found a quick fix, and it only cost me $1.25! I grabbed myself a pool noodle at the dollar store, sliced it, and voila.....!
Now how smart is that?!


  1. Ugh, I love clipboards but hate the storage issues they create - thanks for the tip : )

  2. Wow......that is pretty dang brilliant! I have seen other uses for pool noodles on pinterest....and each time I say, "Why didn't I think of that....."

    1. Haha! Thanks, Katie. It came to me in a (lately rare!) moment of inspiration! I used such a small chunk of it I'm now looking for other places to use the rest of it! ;)
