We decided to do some updating in our homeschool classroom. Here’s a picture of what it looked like before.
With a middle schooler this year, I knew it was time to make some changes. Our old room just screamed “kindergarten.” The first thing we did was to get rid of the “teacher desk” and move an old love seat we already had into our schoolroom. It’s our “reading couch.” We LOVE it!!
Next, I cut the large white board (really just a sheet of “shower board” from Home Depot for about $12) in half. I have two children, so I put half on each side of the room.
I turned the kids desks (bought at flea markets) so that the kids each face their own board.
The border around the boards cost about $3 from Walmart. It’s self-adhesive and was sooo easy to stick on! It even comes with extra stickers so the kids could do a little more creative decorating around their boards.
That’s it! We spent hardly anything and we updated our schoolroom. Next, we hope to give it some new paint and the kids really want make one wall a mural with a big tree, clouds, etc. We’ll see! 🙂
If you have more than two children, you could just cut the board down further and let everyone have their own boards.
