This week's topic is the school room. We are very blessed to have a dedicated space for school and storage. I'm not saying that we do all of our work there but quite a bit.
Looking in from the door. Our main bookshelves, which house some of our Sonlight cores, tot books, instructor guides, and whatever else I shove on there. On the right, holding my beloved Canon printer, is the shelf where I keep Kayleigh's activities. She used to have tot trays on the lower shelves but I need those shelves for books. So the trays are now in drawers. In the center is Kayleigh's table and in back is Mackenzie's keyboard. It has a place of honor next to my laminator. =o)
Standing in the back of the room you can see the desks for Mackenzie and I. Since we've moved to all Macs I can now keep my current IGs where the cpu tower used to go. I LOVE that they are right next to me when I need them. It might be my favorite part of the room at the moment. LOL
The other side of the room is a lot of storage. Math manipulatives, art supplies, science stuff, educational toys and games. The closet there is chock full too. It's still semi-organized since our redo last year. (If you're bored, go check out the before pictures in our school room makeover. Frightening. LOL)
Things I'd like to change...
The wall color. It red doesn't go at all with my colorful trofast bins from IKEA. It was red when we moved in. That I might be able to change soon since the it's chief-selectee season and those guys will be looking to make $$$$. They'd be happy to move all of those bookshelves and paint.
I'd rather have just a window instead of the door wall. That's never going to happen while I live there. I don't care that much.
More wall space to hang maps and such.
The tinkerbell table. It clashes and I don't like things with characters on them. LOL I'm still kicking myself for not getting a little table for Kayleigh while we were at IKEA spending all of our money. Still tinkerbell is better than nothing. I'll fix that next time.
All in all I love it. The furniture, except for Tink, all comes from Ikea. I've got Billy Bookshelves, lots of Trofast storage bins, and I don't remember the name of the desk. The chairs are from are old dining set though.
