Happy New Week Everyone! Before I dive in and share our homeschool routine, details and lesson plans + free printables. I would like to first share our homeschool room + office. I always dreamed of having my very own nook, a corner all to myself where I can read, write and create anything I wanted. So when we first bought our house I wanted to turn this extra room into a playroom + secondary living room. But when back to school signs were everywhere and Sebastian kept talking about how he wanted to start school too I knew it was time for us to set up a school room of our own at home since he is too young to start actual school in my opinion.
If you been following me on Instagram for a while you already know I love incorporating rustic details in our home decor so the very first thing I wanted to get my hands on was a schoolhouse chalkboard. After searching for days and finding that everything was ridiculously expensive I decided to make my very own, which will soon be up for sale at an affordable price of course on my vintage shop coming to my blog soon. It will come in a variety of sizes including single children slate green chalkboards in two sizes 12 x 12 and 16 x 16 along with other antique pieces. I will list and link below details of each item shown on each photo as much as I can but feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions.
The yellow antique clock and books on the shelf above are from my local thrift store and they cost about $1.50 each. The tiny white ceramic pot above is where we keep our white chalk and I found it in the dollar bin section at Target for $3. The shelf above, the children’s chairs and the table below are both from IKEA.
Our storage is pretty basic, in that hand-woven basket we keep our ABC blocks and sometimes crayons. We keep our books in wood crates from Michael’s and rotate them weekly and seasonal or depending on our weekly theme. Our books are borrowed from the library, store-bought, thrift store finds and most were donated by my old boss.
Our daily supplies are kept in a handy caddy organizer nearby and in it, we keep the following supplies:
- Kid friendly scissors
- Watercolor pencils and sharpener
- Washable markers
- extra crayons
- Memory flashcards
- felt money
Extra supplies are kept in mason jars inside baskets or wood boxes in our entry closet.
The printer we use is an HP DeskJet 2655 All-in-One Compact Printer – and we have it in White (V1N04A) it also comes in blue. We bought it at Fry’s but Amazon has them as well.
My husband side is pretty nice and clean. We have a calendar on the left + a wire black basket that I found at Ross for $6 to keep paperwork handy such as bills and receipts.
I hope you guys enjoyed this overdue room tour and I am terribly sorry for taking so long to get this up I know many of you were looking forward to this post when I first posted we were starting school at home.
