At Home School Room
*This post is sponsored by Home Depot.*
Can you believe it is already JULY??!! I can’t! It feels like school just got out, yet here we are half way through summer break! This summer my kids have been on a reading and “book making” kick. They will sit and write, and illustrate “comic books” for hours on end. I LOVE IT! So I decided to get an early jump on back to school, and give them a little area that they could use to create their written masterpieces, and would soon serve as a great homework station.
So, I started looking for some inspiration. I knew I wanted a small work space, preferably with storage. Storage is always a big factor for me! I don’t like seeing the clutter. I want to be able to hide it when it is not in use. So I started looking around and found everything I needed online! Yeah you heard right, I got all the pieces I needed on HomeDepot.com! They carry so much more than just lumber, they have 1000’s of different furniture and decor pieces online!
Let me show you what I found…
I have 2 kiddos, and wanted them to both be able to have their own work space, but take up minimal amount of space. This Kids Unfinished Wood Storage Table and set of Kids Unfinished Wood Chairs were just the ticket!
I love that they come unfinished, to allow me to personalize it to my space and include my kids preferences. One is a die hard blue fan, the other green. They are boys after my own heart and I was more than happy to accommodate their requests. With a quick coat of paint and some staining these little sets were PERFECT for our space.
Another favorite feature ? They have built in storage!
I knew I also wanted to incorporate lockers for storage somehow. I LOVE Lockers , they are so cute and SO functional! I looked at HomeDepot.com… Yup! I found some adorable lockers on their website! Can you believe it? SO I ordered two! They come in a couple of fun colors, but red was my favorite!
These are adorable as is, but you know me. I can’t leave well enough alone, and I wanted to add a fun little twist. I decided to make them look like built-ins! By incorporating a simple build it takes these lockers to the next level and also gives additional storage! (Build Plans Available HERE! )
Honestly, all these items are simply adorable as is… but if you WANT a small DIY project this is the perfect way to add a little bit of your own personal style to!
Well, there you have it folks. My kids now have a cute area that will serve several purposes. It’s a great little area for them to create, as well as a cute homework station, with plenty of storage for book bags, lunchboxes, jackets, etc… #winning!
Thanks so much for following along.
