Our Schoolroom-"After Pictures!"

Here is is! It's amazing, all the things I managed to squeeze into this room! It feels a little less cluttered though. After I was finished, Emily asked me for her "horse coloring book." I said, "It's in the white cupboard." She found it right away so I guess that is a good sign!!

I LOVE having all of the book shelves together!! Speaking of sqeezing things in...some of the shelves are so full, it takes two hands to pull out a book!

My original plan did not have the white cupboard here. I should probably plan out my furniture moving adventures out on graph paper, but I prefer to cross my fingers and hope things fit! LOL

It didn't take as long as I thought it would. I started Monday night and finished Tuesday night. Of course, that's all I did on Tuesday, during the day. :0)

Thanks for looking! Oh, if you click on the pictures and scroll your arrow over them, there are little notes to read.

Oh my what a wonderful school room. I LOVE all the Mary E. It is very carming. We school year around but every fall I have to straiten things up. You have inspired me. Clarice

Kelli, well done!!! All in a day's work, too. The room is airy and spacious, and very attractive. Isn't it nice to have everything organized and right where you want it??? Love that feeling, wish I experienced it more often ;-) BTW, I loved being able to click the pics and read your comments on them. Too fun!

Tammy said...

Kelli now you can come to my house and organize my office space!What a great example you are to your children. I have all these plans but never get around to doing it! Summer as you know I spend out in the garden!! P.S. your constant comments are greatly appreciated and I am pleased that you enjoy your visits with me! :)

Looks nice! I love that feeling of being freshly organized!

Tammy said...

thanks for coming over to see me!
I love your school room...my daughter homeschools my granchildren so it all looks very familiar!
I mentioned I bought the Ohio t-shirts...I also picked up some that said Teachers Pet...I didn't notice till I got them home that there is a small black "s" scribbled in between the e and the t making it into Teachers Pest. I hope my brilliant 6 year old grandson will not notice...he despised smart alek tshirts and refused to wear them...go figure!!
Have fun in the new room and come see me any time!
:-D

Kelli I couldn't get the pictures to come up, they would get stuck when I clicked on them, my slow internet! The room looks so nice, I love the old school desk! Do the kids ever use it? Kelli what about putting some of the books on top of the book case, might make it a little less snugg. I'll try & pull the pictures up again tonight!! BYEEEEEEEE

Kelli said...

Tina, Grace uses her desk all the time! The top opens up and she keeps drawing supplies inside it.
Putting books on the very top shelf is a good idea! Thanks!

Sharon K said...

It looks so neat and clean and organized. I want a schoolroom so bad but my only option is my basement where all my husbands junk is. You did a great job.
