Even though it’s technically summertime, I was eager to organize the homeschool side of the library. Initially I thought I’d have the library all to myself, but then I decided I didn’t want to do school at the kitchen table anymore and the library seemed like the most logical place to keep materials. Easy enough. Half of the library is mine-all-mine, while the other half is for school.
My side is still under construction, but I’m pleased to show you how it’s come along so far.
We tend to stick to earth tones in our home but I wanted this space to be big splashes of color. The drapes are white to allow for plenty of natural light but still provide privacy. The bunting was clearance rack deal (one dollar per strand) and the white lamp was a five-dollar find at the Habitat ReStore. The white table in front of the couch came with the house (it was tucked away in a storage room), and all I had to do was clean and paint it. As you can see on the lefthand bookshelf, I’ve arranged my treasures chromatically. It would make more sense to align them according to author or book title, but the grouped colors are so much more pleasing to the eye.
Salem has been enjoying the library too.
And with this, we are nearly ready to start our summer French lessons.
