Huston Farmhouse: Homeschool Room

We are super excited and feel incredibly blessed to call this place our home now. 
 
We are loving being able to go back to our country-living roots that we both grew up with. It was a long and complicated journey to get here (more on that another day), but we're here now and have been very busy transforming this old 1900 farmhouse into our home.

Since we are starting school tomorrow, one of the first rooms we transformed was our homeschool room. The previous owners had it painted yellow and dark red. We painted all the trim white and the walls light green. Here are some before/afters... 

(I'll post the BEFORE first and the AFTER pic of the same wall right below it.)

 


 
  


 
 


 
  

 
 

And just a couple more of the kids' reading corner...


These are shelves made from desk drawers. It was an old desk we were getting rid of years ago, and I painted them and turned them into shelves. They were the prefect (free!) addition to this reading corner.


I hope to post more pictures as I get the chance. We don't have internet at our house yet (that's another long, stressful story) so I can't post very often. So, more to come when I can!

I love the transformation of your home school room! I never would have thought to use drawers as shelves. Great job!
