(Inside: Whether it’s a homeschool room, bedroom, living room, or kitchen, create a home that you love. Your DIY projects don’t have to be perfect. Just create a place you love.)
I’m down here visiting my sister and I have to share a photo of the room she homeschools in. My sister and her husband did everything themselves: flooring, walls, paint, trim, and finding that awesome map in a dumpster and giving it new life.
Oh my goodness, isn’t her homeschool room cute? It makes me want to road trip with all of my students in the public high school where I teach with me down to learn in her room.
It seems like only brilliant learning can happen in a space so pretty!
But, seriously, even though I don’t homeschool, I do take away something from my sister and her family. They aren’t scared to just go for it with their home. They paint, redo floors, come up with fun designs and just create a space that nourishes. Their home isn’t perfect. THere are some areas where you can tell it’s DIY-style. But their home is so fun, it’s so them, and it inspires me to also work on my space to create a place I love to come home too, as well.
If you like me and are admiring her awesome decorative printables like the ones shown below, then here is where she got the free printable scripture word art: Home Life Blog. That blog has a big selection and I had fun going through and picking some art to print out for myself.
