It’s been almost 3 weeks since the Great Apartment Rearranging and I have to say that our school/kids craft area is my favorite!
It’s part of the dining room. I found a 1950s kitchen table on the cheap to replace our big mid century dining table (*sniff*. But if I start collecting furniture that doesn’t fit in here, I’m going to end up on American Pickers some day).
The only other new thing in the room is the kids table- which has a reversible chalkboard top with storage underneath! Liam loves to shove things down the hole.
Pictured here: practical life/sensory/geography shelves, book baskets, puzzles, science area on the windowsill, art underneath on the hooks
And the genius move of the whole thing: Wes’ idea to use our metal lockable media unit (from Ikea) for school shelves. Now we have our language and math materials inside, it’s the perfect height for the kids, and I can LOCK it (see: boys, 22 months for explanation) when not in use. Plus, it’s magnetic! Genius!!
