Even though I'm sad, Leila is stoked. She can't contain her excitement, and has been talking about a new backpack all. summer. long. We finally got her amazing, glittery backpack but then Leila had a new concern - where are we going to put it when she's home from school?!?!? Um - I don't know, in your room? Was my response, but Leila decided it needed it's own dedicated spot. So, off to Pinterest I went! I found THIS image and loved it, especially since there's a fairly wide open spot on one of our walls. I headed to Cost Plus and found the perfect frames!! (The entire Kingdom Animalia Collection is gorgeous - lots of rustic wood pieces, faux animal busts, vintage-inspired globes and tons more!)
Here are some of my favorites from the new collection:
I bought the frames in the 11 x 14 size and lined the wooden backing with cork. Inspired by the Kingdom Animalia "TRAVEL" art I mod podged an "L" for Leila and a "G" for Gianna with California maps.
I love that each girl has her own "information station" that we can pin birthday party invitations, school info, etc. to - so helpful to have it all in one place!
I then hung the frames and some hooks up on the wall and our school nook was born.
See that cute chalkboard arrow?? Another fun find from the Kingdom Animalia collection, and only $12.99!
I also picked up a few new throw pillows to change up the living room decor just a bit:
