The red cabinet is the "craft cabinet" - just full of the basics like crayons, glue, markers, and paper. All the serious supplies are in the basement cabinets. We love that map. I was going to have it framed this summer... waaaay to expensive. It's thumb tacked to the wall. That door is to the garage.
The secretary desk never functions as a desk, just a catch all. The door to the right of the secretary opens to the foyer. The door to the left of it opens to the kitchen. And through that door is the basement door. And the other door, next to the red cabinet, is the coat closet - full of shoes, bags, and coats soon enough. How's that for a tour of doors?
Boxes for the countless works of art created daily.
Hannah and Will have their own sections of the bookshelf.
Hannah on the left. Will on the right.
I think we're ready!
First grade and Pre-K start tomorrow at our house!

I am on the hunt for bookshelf ideas and I like the looks of yours. I will be back to show my hubby.
I love the white shelves against the yellow walls! Beautiful.... We're moving into a rental and our school room will be the dining room table... I'm going to have to get really creative with all of our book shelves!ReplyDelete
You could probably buy some trim pieces fairly inexpensively at the hardware store and have the store cut them to fit and then nail them around the map straight into the wall. Just a thought. KellyReplyDelete
