School Room

Things have been a bit crazy around here as you may have guessed from the lack of posts this last month! I am back to working on things around the house though and hopefully I will have a bunch projects to show you over the next few weeks!

The first project I have to show you is Jeremy's school room! Since we are going to homeschool, we thought it would be nice to have a room just for doing school work to give him a little more structure and routine. It will also give him a place to leave projects out instead of having to clean them off of the dining table every evening.

The table is covered in a sheet of plexiglass to give it a smooth surface and gives us a place to display whatever we are working on.

His craft supplies are organized with a basket and tumblers from Dollar Tree.

I found this cute crayon border at Dollar Tree as well!

The ABC's are from JoAnn's and spray painted with the same Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch in Apple Red Gloss that I used on the table and chairs in his bedroom. The pillows are the ones that I showed you here.

I made the curtains out of a white checked fabric and added border of apples and buzzing bees.

I found this awesome retro clock at Target.

I used a picture wire and clips to hang his artwork. He loves having it displayed here and the clips make it easy to switch out for newer projects. The white board is a magnetic dry erase board. It works great for his refrigerator alphabet magnets and he can also draw on it.

I also made a red curtain for the doorway that goes into his bedroom. It is great for when we have guests staying in this room. It gives them a bit of privacy and if they stay up late, the lights in here won't keep Jeremy awake. He also loves it because it makes it like a secret passage to his room. :)
