PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

It's back to school time! Debbie Hernandez from Hope Depot gave us some easy and affordable ideas for the classroom or at home.

-Book Shelves made from Gutters

They are inexpensive, lightweight, and easy to install. They can hold lots of books, assignments, papers, etc. They can turn a corner and go all the way around the room, with no bookends needed!

Just cut to desired size with Tin Snips or a Hack Saw, cap the ends, find studs or use anchors, and install.

(Optional-Install on Dry Erase White Board to identify books and assignments and change as desired.)

-Supplies Lazy Susan Organizer

Take a Wood Round, paint or stain to desired finish, attach a Lazy Susan Turntable to the bottom with four 1" screws, place empty metal paint cans on turntable, fill with all kinds of wonderful supplies and enjoy! 

-Individual Dry Erase Boards

Take 4x8 Dry Erase Board Panel and cut into 12x12 boards or to desired size. Use for notes, math problems, voting, games, etc.
