Our homeschool room is getting filled up. Okay to be honest it *is* filled up. But, today I found a deal I just couldn’t pass up. This beautiful desk. Rounds out our collection to three, meaning each child will have his/her own.
Isn’t it a beauty? It’s in awesome condition and the top is so cool. It’s not exactly the same era as my mid century modern design aesthetic but the price was more than right (I was looking at similar *doll* sized desks for Christmas and they cost more than twice as much as I spent).
Yesterday, we stuck with our theme better with this desk we will be using as a printer table:
I really do need to take some good pictures…maybe when life slows down I’ll have time…haha good joke right? Until then, I’m enjoying my flea market finds and my newly redecorated house.
Speaking of which, I’ll leave you with a sneak peak of what we’re doing in our foyer. We have since hung all the road signs and Im loving the look. We hung the dead end sign over the love marquee and J is now happily referring to me as his dead end love. Which I originally thought was rather depressing until J pointed out that maybe being on a dead end is a good thing- because maybe your home is at the end- awww he’s so sappy ❤
It’s almost finished (but of course a complete mess- welcome to my life:). When I started fixing up the homeschool room, I didn’t really think much of it. Decided to do a chalkboard table and found the plastic chairs reminiscent of grade school classroom chairs and all of a sudden I realized I was doing the one thing I thought I never would with decor- going modern.
Last Wednesday, the chair I had finally picked for Anya’s desk arrived. I looked at it and thought…wow that’s a lot bigger than I had planned for 😁. But, I love it. And, the kids love it. So, it stays. And, to be honest, it fits perfectly and so did the price!
I found this red desk at a local thrift store and the ABC fruit crate at the Strasburg Emporium (you can find awesome vintage stuff there but be aware- sometimes the prices are iffy- I think I paid a little more for this crate than I normally would but really how perfect?).
The girls are already having so much fun changing the dates on the calendar. Every morning they run down to put on a new date. This also involves pitter pattering over to the window to check the weather. The other day it went from partly sunny, to cloudy, to raining all within the span of a couple hours.
My sweet oldest child intent at work! I love that the desk has a cubby to hold her school work. I may also add an art wall above the desk.
So, there you have it! The start of our midcentury modern homeschool room.
