Melissa at Home Grown Families is doing a Homeschool Check Up for back to school. Each week she has a theme, and this week it is the school room.
Well, a) we don't have a designated school room and b) all of my school supplies are still in boxes as they were just unloaded off of the truck yesterday. I did, however, come across the most imperfectly, perfect table for our dining room today. It is complete with scratches and dings and pen marks. Not in a dirty/gross way, but in a used-by-kids way. It was a consignment item way in the back of the furniture store where we bought our living room furniture.
It will be perfect not only for family dinners, but I can see how perfect it will be for spreading out school projects!
The rest of the story only makes it better:
I only paid $175 for the table and the 6 chairs.
I will never feel like I'm trying to keep my bull's quiet in the china store.
And oh yeah...there is the view from the school room.
I promise to share more glimpses into our school and learning areas as we get things out of boxes and set up!
