First, I wanted to let you know that I have a homeschool blog too. You can check it out here.
Fun science experiments there.
I think I have mentioned that I am redoing
my our office. It was becoming a catch all room.
Homeschool stuff, DH stuff, old childrens' books, post its, things that had no place got put in the office.
I have cleaned it out and started on the decorations.
Here, I am working on the chalkboard.
I found this old frame at an antique store. It was marked $10, but I got it for $5!
I wiped off the dust and am going to leave it all "old" looking.
DH got me the back and the metal.
Here it is before paint.
Here's the paint I used. I bought it at WalMart, I think for abour $8-$9. It really covers alot.
I also had alot of the stuff in bins. I went through the bins and tossed much of it. The kids either outgrew the items (dress up clothes, etc.) or they just don't use it.
I put the stuff they do use in coffee cans. I got these cans free from an online yard sale. Just had to tear off the wrapper and wash. DS helped me label them.
I am going to get old, gray wall lockers free too. DH needs to take me to the "source".
Hopefully tomorrow. They will replace two mismatched bookshelves, we've had for years.
I will post the final chalkboard photo when it's all done!
