Our New School Room

When we were looking for a house, we had thought we wanted a school room. Even though this house does have room for what could be a school room, we found everything easily has a place in our family room.

This room has built ins, a place for all of the extras, and even our computer. Take a look!


To the right of the couch I put an old antique desk I found at a garage sale for $10. I placed a lamp on it so that it can seem like a side table. I love this space and it is great for independent work. If you look down to the right we have our All About Spelling board, I simply store it behind the desk when not in use.


The drawers hold their daily books.


The shelves hold our library. Books collected from garage sales and ordered on amazon. This shelf below is our science and nature study shelf.


Our nature collection.


On this side we have our reading nook.


If you look under the shelves we have our supplies and the teacher manuals and books, along with audio books and educational dvds. On top of the cabinet is a picture that corresponds with the artist we are studying.



And then on the other side we have our computer for days when we do extra videos or research.


We love this room;  it works so well as a family room when needed and a school room otherwise.

Oooo, I love your nature collection, and how you have it altogether in such an attractive way. We have nature stuff (even I'm surprised by the number of small animal bones we have around this house, sigh), but they are here and there all over (I'm even using a burro vertebrae as a book end). Hmmm, ideas...

Simply beautiful! I love that school is easily at your fingertips yet tucked neatly away.

Oh Wow! I knew you'd do wonders to your new place! You have that touch :) What a lovely area and very schoolish while not very schoolish at the same time. Looks like a quick clean-up to be able to put guests in there at a moment's notice. Very versatile.

What a nice room! You did a great job getting everything in there without having it look too schoolish.
