I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…
classroom decor isn’t allllll for the kids.
It’s for US, too. As teachers who spend upwards of 50 hours a week or more, WE need a space where we are comfortable and feel at home.
It’s an added bonus that creating that comforting space for us also creates a motivating learning environment for our students.
If you’re looking to give your classroom a makeover, you should definitely give the ‘shabby chic’ look a try! Not only is it simple, but it is warm and inviting.
I did some hunting, and found some GREAT finds at Hobby Lobby that would go *perfectly* with my newest set of classroom decor!

Baskets and Trays
Baskets and trays are perfect for students to turn in paperwork! Use these label templates to type your own labels and attach to your trays!
Use this as your main classroom calendar or use it for your teacher-schedule! Easy to add and remove information. If you are looking for another option for a shabby chic calendar, check this one out!
Bulletin Board Accents
How cute would these be to attach to the corners of your bulletin boards for some extra flair? If you’re looking for some bulletin board banners, check these out, too!
How adorable would this be outside your classroom door?! It would completely set the tone for your shabby chic classroom.
Something about plants just makes a space feel extra-homey, don’t you think? These plants don’t need watering or sunshine… so if you’re anything like me it’s PERFECT. I can’t keep a plant alive… shame.
How much fun would it be to have one of these for each of your student tables? Hang them from the ceiling, too! If you are looking for table numbers that you could print instead, click here!
Pillows are awesome for the classroom because the give kids a chance to get comfortable while they learn! This cactus one is a favorite of mine 🙂
Tie in your whole theme with a few accent pieces! I especially love that cactus light 🙂
