School room peek

The "multi-purpose" room is getting a new look. Before, it was a arts/crafts room for Lydie and me, a laundry room, an office for the farm, and a playroom for Lydie. NOW, it is a laundry room, an office for the farm, and a homeschool room. It's a tight squeeze, but we're making it work. I had one goal for this room: no schooly look. I wanted to still enjoy the aesthetics of the room and not have to cover the walls with charts and number lines. Because after all, this is a place for learning, but it's still our home. And this room is in the middle of the house, so I wanted it to blend as much as possible. On Monday the room will be complete because the carpenter is coming that day to insert built-in bookshelves on each side of the fireplace. That will give us exactly one week until school starts, close call! Until then, here are a couple of peeks:
