In July I posted the picture above lamenting the fact that I had no clue what to do with my homeschool room since adding all the contents of my office into that room. Well I’m not finished yet, but I am thrilled that everything is kind of coming together now! 🙂
On a whim I decided I wanted an accent color wall, so my son was nice enough to paint it for me. 🙂 Then this past weekend my nice hubby took me to IKEA for our anniversary! He even let me get the big Expedit shelving unit, when I had planned differently. I love it! I just started getting things organized in it and hope to have it done by the end of the week.
I need to go back to Target and get one more fabric Itso bin and maybe a couple more smaller ones. Since I’m not sure what I’m putting there, I’m going to wait a couple of days. The whole top row are photo albums. I haven’t even printed any albums from the last couple of years! I need to get caught up.
I put our workbox stations behind the couch. I originally didn’t think I’d be able to get them to fit back in the room again, but by rearranging the couch, it works perfectly!
My mom gave me her old craft cabinet which is perfect for all our little crafting supplies/scrapbooking stuff. Thanks mom! 🙂
So I still have a way to go, but I am excited that there is a plan now! I’ll be working on putting together a little toddler/preschool area where the big mess is. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a place for everything. 🙂
How We Will Use This Room:
Basically this room will be homeschool central. We’ll meet here in the mornings and do Bible and go over expected assignments. The older 2 have desks in their rooms, so they will most likely work there. My 8 yr. old usually works on the kitchen table or will work at the computer station if there is no one using the computer. I have set up my computer and the kids’ computer in this room so that it will be easier to monitor computer usage and whether or not they are staying on task with computer assignments. There will also be a toddler/preschool table where my little ones can be working on their own toddler workboxes.
