Oh My Gosh ............ So Cute

Last year,  I bought these plain white benches at Target for my listening center.  One of the benches I bought for additional 15% off because it was all scratch up.   So I put my spray paint addiction to work and painted these benches white.....

Then sponge painted my favorite circle pattern on them.

At first I was going to use black vinyl to put on the words....Listening Bench.....but last minute I saw the green vinyl and decided to use that instead......

Honestly.....I think they are SO CUTE.......... Finally I put a coat of
Mod Podge

on to protect the letters so the children will not peel them and make it easier to wash fingerprints off.   :)

PS...I finally received my copy of Math Work Stations in the mail Thursday and I haven't put it down......and my pattern benches can be part of one my Geometry activities.  :)


  1. I keep reading about people cutting letters from vinyl on Cricut and Silhouette machines. Where can you get vinyl sheets from? I have looked and looked and can't find them...

  2. First of all do you own one of the machines???? the Cricut machine you can buy at a craft store the Sihouette machine you can buy at then you buy your vinyl at the same place.

    I have a silhouette machine it..... you can order everything on line....and it is set up with your computer....

  3. Hi Sue, once you read Debbie's book it will make organizing your math stations so much easier! I loaned mine to a colleague this summer but wish I hadn't since I would love to re-fresh. Enjoy your read! Liz :)
