The Office~After

Here I am! It took longer than I expected, but it turned out much nicer than I expected, so I'm happy!

I cleaned up my paper mess....

We cleared out the big pile of stuff and put a folding table and two chairs in its place.

My mom saved all of our homeschool science supplies and I'm so excited to have a place for them now. If you click on the picture and scroll over it, there are little notes.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover our microscope still works!

A comfy reading chair if I can beat our kitty to it. :0)

I also washed the curtains and all the glass squares. Who knew glass could get so dusty. ;0)

I'm going to work on the bedrooms tomorrow but they aren't too bad, just some dusting and tidying up closets.

Thanks for looking!

Kelli -

It looks beautiful -- so clean and sooo shiny! It's great to get organize isn't it? always makes me feel like a new woman (lol)! I love your wall of books -- :oD -- one can never have too many books or bookshelves ;o)!

It is awesome to have a science corner, and I love all your "stuff." (Before we reorganized and shipped south some items for our move,) I used to keep our science things in a lower kitchen cabinet and our microscope in a corner on the kitchen counter. Yes -- I got asked what it was by all first time visitors. And some were even quite excited when they found out we had dead things under the counter for dissecting, but others -- well . . . ;o)! A dedicated science area is such a great thing; I know you'll enjoy it! :o)

Job well done, Kelli! The "man room" is looking great! How nice to have a science area. We keep our nature things on one book shelf in the school room, and the microscope and that sort of thing are on top of my computer desk, while everything else is in the schoolroom closet. It would be nice to have everything in one place as you've done.

You did a great job. Are you a second generation homeschool mom?

dot said...

You did a good job. I find the hardest part is keeping it that way!

Carole Burant said...

Wow, what a great job you did! Now you realize you can't use the room because it will get all messy again! lol I just love the way you rearranged everything and that chair in front of the bookcase is lovely!!

Susie said...

What a busy bee you are! I always enjoy it when I get things nice and organized. Only wish they'd just stay that way!
