Pinterest is the ultimate visual bookmarking tool and I have had lots of fun using it for organizing all kinds of ideas and inspirations. While I have loved! the recipes on Pinterest , I would have a hard time narrowing them down to a few, so I decided to spotlight recent finds I pinned for what we have dubbed the Learning Lab (aka the schoolroom). You don’t have to be a homeschooler to appreciate these tips. They would be great for kids rooms, play rooms and more.
(loving all the alliteration ) and I would
be thrilled to reach it via these
Goodbye carpet, hello classics!
Incidentally, this was my very first pin.
Continuing the literary theme, books runneth over in our LL and I am always looking for creative ways to store them. These are two very different options ~ one involves a little work (where do I find a giant wooden spool?) and the other a simple fix of some wire baskets on a shelf.
Art is another thing that is overflowing in the LL. I love these super simple clips for hanging artwork or school work. There’s a great tutorial on the site formaking it and I think it costs under $5 if you use leftover paint.
I love this little desk idea for an art corner that can stay set up for impromptu masterpiece-making. The shelf and clips are perfect for displaying said masterpieces.
These last two are actually my own pictures that I’m including so that I can pin them These are bread boxes from Target that I bought for each of the kids’ desks to store all their supplies. For school, I have color-coded the kids and was thrilled that there were boxes in each of their colors.
This year, we’re adding a yellow one for the kindergartner. These keep their desktops nice and neat and their supplies are within arms reach. The best part is – I got them on clearance!
Now it’s your turn! If you’re on Pinterest, do you have a board for a room you’d like to makeover? If you’re not on Pinterest, is there a room you’d like to makeover that Pinterest might help you with?
