|The closet juts out into the room and takes up lots of space.|
Here is how the room looked before the remodel began. For a complete tour see this post.
And now the moment you've been waiting for! The finished schoolroom. Well, almost. We(husband) still need to add the trim, flooring, and curtains(me). Come on in.
Wow, two windows! We had one tiny, dysfunctional window before. The new windows let in lots of light and air which is helping to cool the rest of the house. I hope our electricity bill is less this summer!
We found the table and two chairs at a garage sale the day we were moving our furniture back in. Sarah will use the table as her desk.
This view is not very nice yet. I need to figure out what to put on the wall behind my desk. I would like a clock but that's not the right spot for it. I might paint the Bible verse there when I decide on which one and get over my fear of messing it up.
The light colored walls are a darker shade than the ceiling and soffits. Did you notice? It's hard to tell, especially in a photo. They have a little more yellow than the ceiling and make the room feel warm and sunny.
Nathan's desk is against the back wall. We moved the aquarium into the schoolroom and Fin, the goldfish will be our school mascot.
My parents and oldest son painted the two small desks and Nathan's desk for me. I like the color. They look so much nicer in the room now that they match. Before, Nathan's desk was mustard yellow, one of the small desks was light brown and the other was black.
This is my favorite wall. I love the green color. It's the same color we used in the kitchen.
My husband did a good job planning the lighting. We have one of these lights in each corner. He placed the four little lights on a separate switch from the ceiling fan so we can choose how much light we need during the day. The room is nicely lit, even at night!
Here's the ceiling fans that was given to us by someone my husband works with. Wasn't that nice? I love the style and color and think it goes perfectly in this room.
This is Nathan's desk with the chair we found months ago. I think they go together nicely.
I need to figure out where to keep the keyboard. It might not even stay in the schoolroom.
The toddler toy storage area. I'll throw a blanket on the floor for the little guys to play on. We plan to install laminate flooring later.
A play area.
My mom bought us a flag. I like it. Now I have to teach my children the pledge of allegiance.
The storage area in the corner behind my desk containing items we use daily and weekly. I need to find a small bookshelf so I can be more organized but this should work well for now.
The view from my desk.
My husband and sons did all of the work themselves. It's nice to have a handy and hardworking hubby!
