I was tired of having kid projects, art supplies and homework all over my dining table and floor and decided that the kids needed their own space for such activities. So...
I started with an empty nook: Added a few scrap pieces of lumber and some paint:Then finished off with a custom shelf, some empty cans, construction paper, cork board and voila, a place for everything and everything in it's place...I plan to get some matching chairs or stools, but am finding kid-sized chairs rather expensive, so I may need to whip something up myself.
The kids love their little spot and even ask to do their homework. I'm sure that won't last long, but I will enjoy it while it does.
Now...let's see if we can keep it this way!
