Snazzy Stools!

Finally! I have come up with a solution on how to get my chairs to match my room theme! My room colors are vibrant, so my OCD self would like everything to match :) These are what I have from Ikea. They are under $6 a piece. Great deal! I have seen them around for $10 per stool.

By the way, these stools work great under tables. They save a lot of space. I have had them for 2 years and they have held up marvelously. I definitely recommend them if you teach upper grades. I have had other stools before and my 4th graders have broken them before the year was over.

I found a new spray paint that works on metal and plastic, which is great considering the stools are made up of both!

Spray paint away and the final product is a bright stool! Below are the three that I finished. I have a total of 6 in my room, but I am considering buying another set since my kids love to sit on these and they're better than pillows. They keep any unwanted critters away.

Aside from painting, I have been dabbling in clip art. I have a few things designed and hopefully within the next few weeks I will be able to get out a scribble pack freebie.

As always, Happy blogging!



  1. Great idea just be careful with these stools. They are probably ok for little kids but for my middle school students they did not hold up and the legs bent etc. It was not good. I removed them from my classroom.
