When we added on 2 years ago, we included a school room in our plan. For two years we've had a school room and I've learned that we need a place to store all our school books, but that the kids don't work at one particular spot all the time. So, I devised a plan for a desk area that seats two with bookshelves above it. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to make it work, until we made a trip to ikea last week. I found my desktop! We added shelves from Lowes. A perfect work area.
Much to my husband's
chagrin delight, I had even bigger plans! I wanted a wall of shelves on the wall between the school room and the kitchen. We have it almost completed (we have 2 2 foot sections that we had to have ripped). I am very pleased with the end result. I have lots of room to add more books, as well! The crates on the floor hold all the picture books. I plan on putting casters on them, so they can easily be rolled in and out.
Maybe it's not quite a library, but the kids have agreed to start calling it the library instead of the school room! So, I have a library at last.
