Our Homeschool Room!

I am no designer or fashion guru, but once we decided to have the littles' school room in the living room and I knew the dimensions of the wall that would house their desks, I got a vision rolling around in my head of what I thought might be a functional space with a fun color theme. :)

Don't make fun of me if you don't think it belongs in a magazine ;) but this is pretty much what I had in my head... :)

I've redone their bookshelves just a tiny bit, there were a couple things not quite done when I took the pic! :)


I realize now that if the wall what just a bit longer it would have been better to have the chalkboard horizontal, but hopefully it will still work well for what we need to use it for! It has so far. :)

I love that they each have their own bookshelf, they each have so many books and things for their curriculum, plus some games, other books for reading, devotional books, and in the baskets are their math manipulative blocks, some things for their language arts (I'll go into more detail on all of that soon!), and some magnetic letters and numbers.

The rest of the living room isn't quite done yet, so after pics of the whole room to come (at some point ;))!

A Few Deets:

I made the cork board squares (blog post coming :)), Hubby and I redid the chairs, and I made the magnetic chalkboard! (post coming soon too :)). The baskets were purchased separately from The Hob (half price and fit perfectly), and the desk, bookshelves, lamps, and clock were each on sale (at different times :)), plus additional discounts! from Target.

The boys are so excited to have their own desks (with a drawer for their pencils, crayons, and some papers ;)) and area for their school room! Sweet HM really wants her own too, besides a little table ;), we may have to rethink the setup in a few years! ;)
