Closet Homeschoolers

Okay, so it's not a closet, but it still feels a little strange that all our homeschool things are in the basement. It sure looks good, though!

We haven't finished it all yet, but it's coming along nicely. Daniel and his dad built the new white storage cabinet and shelves along the back wall. We got them from Lowe's for a good price. The colorful collapsible fabric drawers were only six dollars as opposed to the eight dollar ones at the local scrapbook store, Archiver's. I got the posters, border strip, and dry-erase calendar from Target in the dollar spot. Daniel's parents gave us the desks. We still need to find chairs the right height for them. The wooden drawer unit on the left came from Big Lots.

The girls have been playing down there daily since Grandpa and Daniel installed fluorescent lights in the ceiling. We will officially be starting homeschooling down there tomorrow. We're all looking forward to it. We still need to hang our dry erase boards and we're going to store scraps of construction paper and scrapbooking paper in Gloria's old desk and let them cut and paste to their heart's content.

Oh! I am so jealous of your schoolroom! It looks wonderful! Thanks for listing where you get things. It gives me more places to shop!!

We've been on a shopping frenzy it seems like lately. Not in this picture, but instead on the wall directly opposite, are more cabinets and shelves holding my scrapbook supplies. I realized today that I need even more. I only bought shelves for my 12 x 12 paper, and need some for my 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Oh well. Back to Target!
