Here is my formal dining room turned school room. These pictures were taken last school session. The schoolroom hasn’t changed much since.
This picture was taken right after I added my new find. I found the Pottery Barn unit on Craigslist. I now have the shelves filled with school supplies stored in these fun containers. I found 7 of them at the thrift store for $2 ea.
The Little’s enjoy working on their own desk but I prefer the table.
I hang selected school work above the red armoire. I use fishing line and clothes pins. It’s my favorite system–easy, cute and cheap.
I love having everything school related in one room. I added the metal garage storage units (found at Costco). I put magnets on wall charts and hang them on the metal frame. It’s the prefect height for the Little’s and covers the storage.
Above the storage units is my week at glance system – cork boards and magnetic/dry-erase boards. The system never worked as I had intended but served as nice display for school work.
The black shelving unit is a recycled piece that my mom picked up from a local convent. I love that it is solid wood. It serves as a room divider from the hallway. I mounted a felt board, cork board, dry-erase board and chalk board to the back side of the unit. It keeps the boys busy.
The black desk is mine!
Here’s the high school room/office/craft room that Rose and I share.
