My Curtains! :D

I am so excited! I found this as a shower curtain at Target. My grandmother made it into two valances about 16 inches long and I still have half a shower curtain to do something with! I put them up today and although the pictures aren't the best, it look so great in there now. Although the janitor kinda busted my bubble and said I probably wouldn't be allowed to leave them up.... Boo!

Once I get the whole room set up I will take more pictures early in the day. Once the sun comes over the building, everything turns into a big glare!

Hey...

I found the very same material at Walmart and made curtains for my classroom. I needed 14 panels and replaced curtains I made 5 years ago. I am from North Dakota....great minds think alike, I guess!

By the way at a local teacher store, I found trim and letters to match. They are by Creative Teaching Press and are called Dots on Chocolate. They also had charts, sticker charts for kids, and blank paper with dots on the side. I am going to laminate those and put some letters in them to use for something...

Target has some pink buckets that I bought in the dollar spot to use for pencil holders. Then I bought some brown baskets to trim with dot ribbon (walmart for both). Found some pink dotted plates (Walmart) to use for something...

Since the cabinets are a mauvey--pinkish it really pulls the room together. IF I ever get it down, I will post some pictures.

Just thought I would share...

why i wouldn't be able to keep them... The janitor just said I probably wouldn't be able to keep them up. I know every other room in the building has blinds but mine. So no one else is really able to hang up curtains. I am hoping they don't say anything and I can keep them up!

It might have to do with them being a fire hazard. In our district, if we want to have a rug or curtains they need to be sprayed with a fire retardant before we use them. Our janitor does this for us. Before taking them out, make sure to ask for the reason why? You might be able to fix the problem so they can stay

I'm thinking of all the junk that most teachers accumulate in their classrooms. What difference is a curtain going to make when you think about something being a fire hazard?
I've thrown away more paper this summer than I kept. (Purged 4 file cabinets) I really can't see how they could squawk about curtains when there could be 2 tons of paper in there.

Those are so- cute. I just made curtains for the first time this year and I am so really excited and think that they will make all the difference in the classroom. KUDOS to you!

Fire exit

The window is a potential exit in case of a fire. Having the curtains on the window catch fire would make escape more difficult.

If the curtains are on fire...

...and make jumping through the glass windows difficult, you can always use the door right next to the window

I think your curtains are darling! Hope they get to stay up where they belong!

Where did you purchase the shower curtain? It would go great with my room's decor

There is no way out the window. They don't open. So of course if there is a fire we would have to use the door!

I got the shower curtain at Target. They have all kinds of fun things to compliment it too... I had a hard time resisting!

Those curtains are PERFECT. I just made curtains for my D.O.C themed room for the first time ever. I used the no sew stuff I found at Jo'Ann's and I found the fabric at Jo'Ann's, but I so LOVE your shower curtains better than my fabric. I'm so excited to find someone doing "my" theme with curtains to match. When I'm done with my room I'll post pics and I hope you'll do the same...I hope you have a great year.

P.S. I'd leave the curtains up until my Principal says I have to take them down.

I'd ask the janitor why you might not be able to keep them up. It is possibly b/c they aren't fire retardant. If so- ask if you buy the spray, and spray them, if you can keep them. They are WAY too cute to not display. There has to be a way around this. ASK!!!

Fire Retardant Spray

I would buy the spray and keep the documentaion so when the fire marshall comes to inspect you (and the custodian) have a copy. You might have to do this every school year though!

BTW: They are adorable!
