Office/School Room Before and After

We worked hard on this room and we're really happy with it. Now we pray that our school time here will be blessed by God.

Here is the main wall as it was before we started:

And here's the same view today:

Here's the "closet space" for the room. It used to house a wire shelf (now in the garage) full of the kids' craft supplies and some of our other assorted junk (which I had to find a better home for):

And the same space now, which holds my desk, a shelf Kevin built for school books, and all my other assorted office supplies:

Finally, a view of the window, the kids' table, and more shelves Kevin built. I designed the curtains, and my lovely seamstress neighbor Karen sewed them (and Kristi's mom, Melody hemmed them). I LOVE all the color in this room.

I have been looking forward to seeing your school looks awesome! I would love to have a room that looks just like that....even if it was just for my kids to work on homework and crafts. I am very impressed! Do any of your kiddos share rooms?

Teri- that looks fantastic! I love it! I want to go to school there! I'm sure all of you will have many happy memories and huge accomplishments in that space you have created! I pray too that God blesses you on your new journey! I am excited to follow your journey through your blog:)

WOW!!!!THat looks so great! The kids must be so excited to use their new room. After you finish your extreme sports vs homeschooling article you could write one about decorating for homeschooling!

Teri, the room looks beautiful! I love it! Kevin did a great job on all the shelves and all the colors look really nice together. What a lot of work, no wonder it took you so long. Worth all the effort, at least from my opinion.

What a fantastic transformation! Do you guys hire out? I'm seeing this for the first time in your blog. I should have stepped further into you house recently to see this splendor in person.
