This is the rest of the calendar time calendar. It is on the pegboard wall to the left of the cabinets.
This is a picture of that wall from the doorway. This is where our counter top "desks" are. I actually have three of those bar stools (two still need put together!) Miss A and Miss C each have their own section of the desk with their books and a basket with their supplies. Underneath the counter top is a GINORMOUS cabinet that is storing ALL of the girl's clothes (and we have a lot of clothes!) We put some cool ABC, addition, telling time, and counting posters up on them.
This is the opposite wall from the "desk". It was the one with the shelves and all the storage in the before picture. Now, it has a cool reading area with a princess canopy and bean bags. Also, the shelves are full with the chore chart, and all kinds of preschool manipulatives and puzzles and a kid's table for Miss O. Her own special little spot. Oh, and more posters here too.
Here are a few more pics of Miss O's special spot. If you look at the top, those are metal clips hanging the girl's artwork on the air vent. This will be awesome for hanging projects to dry.
The best part of the whole makeover? It only cost me exactly $100.00!
PAINT=FREE (We used paint and paint supplies leftover from painting the upstairs when we moved in.)
AREA RUGS=$40 (Couldn't resist. That floor needed something to make it fun and comfy.)
BAR STOOLS=$38 (A whole blog post on this coming up!)
NEW CURTAIN=$15 (Should have gone for the $5 one at Big Lots, oh well.)
BEAN BAGS=FREE (Miss O's birthday presents from Grandma and Papa. Thanks Grandma and Papa!)
PRINCESS CANOPY=$7 (on clearance)
We already had everything else! The girls are so excited. They keep asking if they can go downstairs just to look at the room again! I'm glad they like it, because we are going to be spending a lot of time there starting next week. Speaking of which, next Organization Overload post is all about our homeschool schedule. Now that you've seen the room, I thought you might like to hear how a day of homeschool will go. It's all about organizing our time!
