Homeschool Classroom

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 just 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 put on!

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! 🙂

BTW…our classroom was actually a deck on our house plans!  We decided to wall it in.  Goes to show you, you don’t have to have a huge space for your schoolroom!

  1. Looks lovely! I agree with you wholeheartedly about the importance of making sure the schoolroom doesn’t look too “kindergarten” as they start moving up in grades. Your innovations reflect their growth, as well as yours! Awesome job!
