Would you look at this?
The school room reveal I’ve been alluding too!
Ever since we decided to begin homeschool preschool in January I’ve been eager to have a designated place for our craft and workbook time. We flip flopped our former upstairs office and downstairs play room and now, the traditional bonus/media room is our school room! The other half of the bonus room, the part you don’t see in these photos is a modified man cave and my craft desk stuffed in a corner. It is not picturesque and therefore shall not be making a debut. Just keepin’ things real.
Our school space is bright and cheery, sometimes organized, and most of all, always a fun place to learn and explore. Both Jemma and Max have thrived in this environment. Jemma begs me to “read the ‘rections” (directions) in her workbook as she settles onto the bench in her chosen outfit of the day – usually pajamas. And Max. Oh, Max … he knows just what tubs hold his favorite building sets and when Jemma is hard at work sometimes he’ll join her, sitting ON TOP of the table, to begin a coloring project of his own.
I suspect we’ll have many lovely days settled at this table with the sun streaming in. As they get older, I even have a little mama space tucked in the corner for my homeschool planning!
With our beige walls and lack of painting motivation I really wanted to bring some color into this space. Hence, a very special welcome to the most exciting rug all thanks to Mohawk Home. Isn’t it divine? The quality is impeccable and it brings such a cheerful vibe to spur on our learning time.
Other favorite elements include the ginormous chalkboard quote print, my second Annie Sloan project (see my first here!) and the Instagram collage on our Expedit thanks to Printstagram. I’ve been putting off printing Instagram photos and finally got to it – I’m so happy I went with Printstagram, they are sturdy, the coloring is spot on and now I have a handful of my favorite memories on display for daily viewing.
