our homeschool room

this room has evolved a lot over the last year. it began as a craft room/play room at the beginning, but now is where we do a lot of our homeschooling too.  the room is filled with lots of books that i had from my teaching days, plenty of art supplies and some vintage classroom furniture.
i have a thing for old school furniture and items.  the table and chairs were my first purchase off of craigslist.  we needed this.  everything in the room existed before we began homeschooling, but i needed a place were we could all sit and work on things.  i was tired of sitting on the floor!
the vintage map was a birthday gift from my friend, Mandy, which is one of my most favorite gifts ever!  it's my favorite item in the room!  the bins below the map is where all of our art supplies are tucked away.
we have lots of puzzles and games we play with!
the vintage desk is a find i found at the flea market, my friends were selling it.  i think it called my name when i saw it..."melissa, you need to buy me!" i did.

i love my large bulletin board! i almost need a bigger one!  the whiteboard is filled with the new grammar we are learning each week, which is apart of our classical conversations program.
