So I like to get crafty in July. I am going to use a safari theme in my classroom this year. I made this fun bench to go in my reading corner. The best part was, my husband did not have to do any of the work. The wood was from Lowes and already the correct size. The cement blocks just needed some black paint, and then zebra stripes. I also have some black crates to cover and use as the storage/stools, as soon as I get my husband to cut some wood.
