Our Learning Room!

A 'Before' Picture - No Furniture, Just A Few Toys

Our Storage Units

Last week we were fortunate enough to have been able to have a carpenter friend of ours put in the storage units, shelving and workspace for our 'schoolroom'.  I like to think of it as more of a learning its not just for the children and its a going to be a bright, fun, comfortable, efficient, 'we love to be in here' sort of room!  At the moment it is still kind of plain but hopefully that will change.  Already since taking these photographs I have added all our educational DVDs and software to the top shelf and most of our reference books to the bottom shelf, added posters, stationery...etc...

More Storage, Shelving and Workspace

Amy Volunteering To Show Off Our New Room!

Simply put, this space means that I will no longer have reference books stacked up in random rooms of our home, school work littered about the place, will have a space to store our pre-school activities (that I don't want in everyday play) and also will be able to keep our educational DVDs and software somewhere safe!  I will try to remember to post updated photographs of this room as I finish it off and add further things.  I actually did not think that we would be able to install these this year, due to finances but the Lord is good and has provided abundantly!  I am so thrilled with these units that I cannot describe to you how excited I am!

What a wonderful blessing! I'm trying not to be jealous. I need to figure out a better system for my piles of homeschool books. So happy for you!

Amy thank you so much for the SouleMama link! You are right she does have some fantastic ideas!...I think we should also call our room 'the library' for the same reason, that I've always wanted one! I'll see what everyone else think ;)

Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

God Bless!
