It's not finished, but...

I'll let you have a look anyway!

Here's what we've accomplished so far in our homeschool room. Sorry for the picture quality. This room has poor lighting, and it probably doesn't help that I took all of these with my mobile phone.

 This desk is older than I am. It's been in my family for a while!

I'd like to have the room painted by the end of the month, but that's unlikely. At least I have the accent wall done!  The bean bag chairs need some love (more fluff and some minor repairs), and I plan on painting the cabinet the copier is perched on.  The wall decor definitely leaves something to be desired, but... it's getting there. Rome wasn't built in a day, right?

Our four kiddos love the room.  Guess where they headed when they crawled out of bed!

Evangeline found the Memory game. She's very observant.  She stares down everyone and everything.

After breakfast, I sat down to read a book to Evangeline, but was eventually crowded out by three other children who took over the book and cut me out of the circle! Ha!

I absolutely love your school room! It's absolutely understandable why the kids would want to bee-line there first thing in the morning!

Your room is beautiful and I love the colors. Even your ironing board matches!! I am sure the kids are going to enjoy many hours in this special room. The recent pictures of the kids are adorable. They are so cute.

The room is looking REALLY nice, you seem to have really good taste and wonderful organizing skills!

When I saw the pic of the wall where you mention you want to put a big piece of metal, I remembered something that MIGHT be easier and cheaper.

Don't know if it would work for what you need, but you could use magnetic paint on that wall, or part of it. Just thought I'd let you know since I just found out about this a few weeks ago and thought it was really cool. :)
