Classroom Makeover
Read about my classroom makeover tips for creating a blacks and brights classroom theme. If you love all things rainbow and colors that pop, this post is for you!
After taking a year-long maternity leave last year, I wanted to give my classroom a makeover on a budget!  I had been following Melanie @SchoolGirlStyle on Instagram for some time.  If you don’t follow her, you should!  Her posts inspired me to try the Twinkle, Twinkle, You’re a Star Collection by School Girl Style to go with my “Blacks and Brights” theme that I had envisioned.  

My Blacks and Brights Rainbow Classroom Makeover

The Backgrounds

First, I purchased solid black fabric as well as black and white polka dots for my bulletin board backgrounds.  I prefer using fabric as opposed to paper because it lasts so much longer.  It is definitely worth the investment!

The Borders

Next on the list was choosing borders.  I decided on School Girl Style’s Rainbow Dot Borders  and Rainbow Stripe Borders.  They work perfectly together while giving the room a colorful and cohesive look.

The Birthday Board

One of the first boards I hung was the Twinkle, Twinkle You’re A Star Birthday Bulletin Board Set seen below.  I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.  I’ve received so many compliments on this board.  It looks AMAZING!

Follow Your Dreams

I displayed this Follow Your Dreams Bulletin Board Set in the hallway outside my classroom.  It was perfect for Meet the Teacher Night.  After I take this down to hang student work in its place, I am thinking of moving it inside my classroom to display above my bulletin boards.  I think this is the perfect inspirational message to have on the walls year-round!
