Colorful Chalkboard Bulletin Board Set & Scalloped Borders from Carson-Dellosa

Fun classroom decor makes me happy.  I love seeing the Colorful Chalkboard Bulletin Board Set & Scalloped Borders from Carson-Dellosa in my room.  My classroom is my home away from home.  I spend a great deal of my time at school so I want my walls to look great.

The Colorful Classroom Bulletin Board Set includes 1 birthday chart, 1 calendar, 1 incentive chart, 1 all-purpose chart, 35 calendar cover-ups and 1 door label.  This modern collection is created with a trendy color palette and will add just the right amount of color to your space.  It has a hip girly flair that I love, but it's not too feminine that it wouldn't work for boys, too.  The oval date shape is unique and the black border allows all the colors to really stand out!  All charts measure 17" x 24".

The perfect partner to their bulletin board set is their Chalkboard Scalloped Borders.  This awesome border is two-sided!  Now you can showcase your student creations, windows, bulletin boards and more with this beautiful border.  Use alone or layer them for a custom look.  Borders come in a pack of thirteen 3' x 2 1/4" strips for a total length of 39'.

If you're really after a cohesive classroom theme, be sure to check out their other coordinating products in this collection.
