New Library Quotes

I’ve been back from my California extravaganza for a week now, and my world has been revolving around moving into the new library. Things are getting unpacked and the library is starting to look cute. I mean… if you know me, you know that CUTE is a major priority 🙂

A huge project that we’ve been tackling right off is putting up the new wall quotes. I loved my wall quotes at the old library and knew I wanted to do something similar in the new school. The old ones we painted using stencils, but obviously there is no painting these brand new walls! We have a Cricuit machine at school and I purchased some vinyl sheets and spent quite a bit of time cutting out the five quotes I decided on. I recruited help from my amazing mom and awesome friend BJ, and we got to sticking! Thanks ladies, I couldn’t do it without you!

  

  

How the heck are we getting these letters on straight? Mom got a laser level that sticks to the wall. Genius!

So here are the five quotes that are now hanging out in the beautiful new library (colors: teal, pink, blue, purple, green):

 

  

  

  

And here are the two decorative arrangements that are in front of the huge windows:

  

There’s still lots of work to be done and many more blogs posts to come, but I’m so proud of how things are coming along!

  3. Lovely! I love it when school librarians take interest in how their library looks and try to keep it fresh. Nothing is worse than an ugly school library! I’d love to see more photos as the transformation progresses!

  4. I love what you’re doing in your library!!! I am moving to a new (brand new!) middle school this year (from elementary) and you have given me some answers and ideas!! Thanks!!

  5. Beautiful! I totally understand needing to prettify your space. I can’t wait to get back to my new library so that I can start decorating too. The quotes are a great way to fill up those ginormous white walls so many of us have.

  6. Tiffany,
    It looks fabulous! I am inspired to fill my new blank wallspace when I return this fall. What size letters did you use for the quotes?

  7. Hi! Looks awesome! I was wondering what type of vinyl you used. I have been contemplating doing the same with my circut…just not sure on vinyl.
