Monday Made It & Back to school bulletin boards...flashback!

I was just going to share with you some of my favorite back to school door décor!
The first year I was at my school, I was a little reluctant to "go big" with my decorating, then by my second year that had disappeared. I don't even think I have a picture of the door my first year.( It was a boring "Welcome to the Hive" with bees that came in a bulletin board kit. BLAH) All I actually decorated was the door. As time went on, I decided just to use the whole wall by my room!
 Year 2 door
Year 3 door
 
Year 4 door
 Year 5

now...
 
Monday Made It!!! I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for my Monday Made It today. This is an antique window pane I'm painting for my sister-in-law's new baby nursery. It's still in the works...I still have to paint the frame and touch up the flowers. But it's what I'm making today.
 
Have a great day!!!

  3. I love your doors! I tend to like to go big when decorating as well. I love to pick a theme and run with it! My first year teaching in junior high, I decorated my door and my neighbor teachers started freaking out! They asked me if anyone told us we had to decorate it because "we" didn't do that in junior high! :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am also your newest follower!
