Hi all, hope you had a great weekend! A few weeks ago, I mentioned that one of my home goals for this year was to take a bare patch of wall in my kids play space and turn it into an art and homework station. Many many moons ago, before the little ones were born, I actually had a ‘formal’ dining room. Ha! Those were the days when we had an entire room dedicated to formal dining. No point in that these days, so after those babies were born we decided to better use that square footage to store their toys, games, etc in a kid friendly space.
There was a bare unused patch of wall in there, so over the weekend I created a little art desk and wall gallery for my daughter. Art is her most favorite activity ~ drawing or painting is the first thing she wants to do when she wakes up, and the big excuse she uses to wiggle out of her looming homework. I decided to encourage her talents and dedicate a little station to my budding artist.
Her older sister gave her the desk from her bedroom, so that meant I didn’t have to buy one! Yeehaw, gotta love shopping your house for the perfect solution! I gave it some grosgrain ribbon trim around the edges for a fun pop of color.
