Remove cheap cardboard from the back of pre-fab shelving units and add character with pallet wood. Love this. Wish I would've known about it for the Home Depot shelving unit. It would have lasted soooo much longer!
chalkboard globes - create your own world. Great teaching tool and u can draw only one continent/country to focus on for a while and list details about it on other parts of the globe. Good for the out of date globes that drive hubby nuts too ;
