I have a long post brewing about our new school room, but I haven't put pen to paper yet, so to speak. Ryan and I painted our upstairs gameroom, which really had no purpose up to this point, but will now be our school room. We built some desks for the kids and painted a coffee table from freecycle. We have two free couches and a free chair, some hand-me-down bookshelves, and a few other various very cheap/free items, that had all been placed in this room because we had no other place for them in our house. So the room is sort of a hodge podge of stuff, and doesn't look like the beautiful school rooms I see on other people's cute blogs, but I think it's going to function very well for us!
A few before pictures:
|this color is the color that our entire house was before we started to paint downstairs. only a few rooms of this color are left!|
|As I moved the furniture, I saw some writing on the wall that Beth had left from last year... Just a few pencil letters and stick figures but it was sort of sweet to stumble upon them. :-)|
