One of the fun things about moving to a new house is that we now have a new school room. I actually am in love with our school room. It is in the attic and only has sky lights for windows. It is a long room, with lots of wall space for books. It was the bonus room, but the previous owner was an artist and used it for her art studio, so she put a sink in it and some cabinets and drawers. Maybe the idea is that that area is a kitchenette, but for us it is just perfect for housing all kinds of stuff, like games, art supplies, manipulatives, you name it.
I had to purchase new bookcases, because the walls aren’t full height, so my old cases were too tall. (I’ve put them to use though in the garage. They are now being filled with canned food.)
We had been storing the kitchen table that we had used back in the early days of our marriage, until we had children and couldn’t sit around it anymore. That now serves as our school table.
We need to work on decorating the room a little more, but that will come with time, hopefully.
