First day of school today... first day for Dear Daughter to step out of the safe haven that is elementary school into the big, bad world of JUNIOR HIGH. Ugh. She's ready, and I'm excited for her... but she's my BABY and that school is BIG and girls are MEAN and... well, I could go on and on but I'm trying very hard not to be a helicopter mommy. And I can't even talk about the fact that Sweet Son is now a JUNIOR. Really?
But there is a bright side... and I do mean BRIGHT. Check out DD's locker...

Yes, that IS a lamp that LIGHTS UP when you open the door, and WALLPAPER and a SHAG CARPET. SERIOUSLY. And here is the million dollar question... WHY, OH WHY did I not think of this first? Rumor has it two mommies came up with this stuff while hanging out in their garage... and they are apparently now two RICH GENIUS mommies, because our local Learning Express can't keep it in stock. GENIUS, I tell ya'. Pure genius. Go to their website and you can virtually design your very own locker... it's oddly addicting.
The Magnetic Mesh Vanity Bin is from The Container Store. The turquoise bin, fun little chipboard flower magnets and magnetic dry erase markers are from Target. The bright colored locker shelves are from Walgreens, but you can find similar online HERE.
I made the dry erase board by painting an old frame lime green and putting some pretty purple scrapbook paper behind the glass. You can find the tutorial for a similar version HERE, paint it whatever color you wish and make it your own.
I would have been ALL OVER this when I was in 6th grade but since we were stuck taping up pics of Leif Garrett and Shaun Cassidy torn out of our "Tiger Beat" magazines, I will just have to live vicariously.
Happy Back To
Reality School everyone...
