Homeschool Room - Rugs

We needed something to protect the floor where the chairs would be scooted in and out on a daily basis. I found these cute rugs at Lowe's for $13 each.

The colors perfectly tie in all the colors we have used already in the room.

Good Work Board

I love having this big bulletin board in the homeschool room. The kids are so proud to be able to put their papers on the board.

I have been trying to keep them rotated every few days to really showcase all their good work, which in turn motivates them towards more good work.

It has also given me the chance to use some of my old teaching visuals from college :)

Homeschool Room Paint Color

I have had several people ask what the paint color is for the Homeschool Room. It is called Spring Garden Walk #7768 by Olympic.

It was a hard color to pick out because I wanted it to look pretty and also not be overstimulating for school...does that make sense? I wanted the kids to be a part of the decision since they too will be spending a lot of time in there.

We wanted bright and cheerful. I think we achieved both without being too in your face. I think having a lot of natural light in there helps too! If we didn't, I think it would appear much brighter!

The Completed Desks

I am so proud of my sweet husband! He has done an amazing job on the desks for the school room! They are now painted and have the 3rd coat of poly on them. I can't wait for them to be completely dry so we can start setting things up for school to start next week!
