A homework is where you kid’s study or or sometimes do your planning here. And based from my experience it’s really hard to concentrate when you have a messy homework room. You don’t need an extravagant makeover for this. Just go for simple and easy one!
Remember how I’m slowly slinking around my BFF’s house and eating all of the food in her fridge making over rooms for her? (You’ve seen her living room upgrade here). Well, I’m back with a sweet and simple homework room that we pulled together for her kids….juuuuust in time for school to be over for the year. #FlawlessTiming
Thankfully they’ve already found that it’s pretty useful year round. Our goal was just to create a space that’s functional, not too spendy, and something that can grow with them (the kids are 2, 6, and 7). And since it’s right off the foyer, we wanted it to look nice since it’s one of the first things people see when they step through the front door.
Let’s flash back in time to the room as it looked when they moved in. It’s a gorgeous house with big windows and a cool spiral staircase. Our secret weapons for this makeover? Not-so-secret things like some fresh paint on the walls, a light fixture switch, a new rug, some homemade art, and a few inexpensive finds from Ikea, Target, and HomeGoods. No item that we bought for this room was over $160. Even that giant rug was under $140! I know, it’s pretty exciting.
