Ultimate Homeschool Spruce Up!

I cam across Apologia's Ultimate Homeschool Spruce Up contest on Facebook the other day and I thought 'What the heck! I'll give it a shot!'. They wanted to know what type of projects you are working on to organize and get ready for the new school year to start. The prizes are the Ultimate Homeschool Planner by Debra Bell (which I'm dying to get my hands on!) and a $100 Lowe's gift card. Who doesn't like gift cards?!

All I have managed to do so far is to order the curriculum I picked out (I'll post about that later!) and set up our "homeschool area". Our "area" for now will be located in our kitchen. I think that will work out well because that seems like where I spend most of my time! I found a desk on the side of the road -believe it or not- and I picked it up! I have no problems doing that! For another desk Im buying a one from a friend. I like to keep it on the cheap! ha! the only thing I planning on  buying new is some bookcases (Unless I happen to find some used ones for less!) and a cork board, maps, and a white board. Im thinking about attaching them to a painted piece of plywood and covering up the window you see in the before picture. That window get really hot and I think that would block some of the heat and give me the wall space I need.

Take a look at the before and after pictures:

*Dont laugh! This is my first time trying anything like this in photoshop! Just kidding, you can laugh! ;)



This is just what I plan on doing, so things may change. I'll post a picture when Im done fixing it up for realz! :)

What do you think? What are you doing to get ready for the school year? Drop me a note to let me know what you think!

  1. I had to do a double take on the second photo! That was so clever. I thought, "Hmmm, the chair looks a little funny". It's fun to have a cleared space to get organized and arranged. Thank you for linking up to our contest.
