Our Schoolroom

Here it is!

The finished product. The result of THREE entire days of working. Yeah. Remember how I said one day?

Yeah, right.  Anyway, it feels great to be done.

Kindergarten corner

I LOVE my job!

And I even got the kitchen cleaned after its demolition.

Happy Monday. 








  1. It looks wonderful!! I love all the baskets for everything. Kindergarten corner is great!

    • Thanks, Tara! I love how I can sit in that room with all the boys and am better able to focus on JUST school, because I can’t see the dishes or the laundry in there…. 😉

    It looks wonderful. Congratulatiions.

  4. WOW! You are soooo Amazing! I have 3 boys so far and am slightly interested in homeschooling. I have read a little and think your way of setting up a Homeschool Room is an EXCELLENT idea, because it is so easy to be distracted with all the things that need to be done in a home of Littles. I am just curious to know if everyone goes in at the same time of day or do you rotate students. Thanks!

    • Thanks so much for your kind words! I won’t sugar-coat it – homeschooling is one of the hardest things I have ever done.. But it is by far, one of the most rewarding! And yes, there are times when I have all 7 boys in there with me, and times when I am just working with one or two, depending on what subjects we are working on that day. I ALWAYS have the baby with me. He is either in my arms, crawling around, or in his little pack-n-play. And the 4th and 2nd graders are usually at their desks until they’re finished. My 7th grader does a lot of his schoolwork at his desk in his room, as he can work more independently. And the Kindergartener and pre-k boys sometimes work at the same time and some days I work with individually, depending on if there is a new concept I need to teach one or both….. Hope that makes sense. Have a blessed day!!

  5. Wow! Brandy! Thanks for the inspiration! I’m currently trying to figure out a good place to homeschool- as we tend to land in our dining room. Which is not always conducive to learning. We’re a little cramped for space, so organization is always needed! Thanks for the inspiring ideas!

    • Thank you, Jessica! We, too, tried the “just do school wherever” approach, and it just didn’t work for us. I felt like the boys were “getting away” from me in their schoolwork. 🙂

  6. Well, you inspired me (although my husband might say that you drove me over the edge to insanity!)! I decided to completely switch 2 rooms in order to have a bigger school room. We’re not quite done yet, but I hope to be done tomorrow or Saturday and have some pictures up. We’re having out of town family come in next week so we HAVE to be done before then!! 🙂

  7. How fun! love the lil IKEA table 🙂

  8. Your classroom looks great! I wish mine looked and was half as functional as yours… but its not. Our classroom is small: half classroom, half play room at that.

  9. I have a little bit of schoolroom envy here… love it! I love how everything has its place… we do the school wherever thing and it kind of has to work because we don’t have any other rooms… it’d be nice to somehow work one in somewhere.

    I have two older boys this year, one in 10th and one in 7th, and they need less help and end up with schoolwork on the couch or in the rocking chair while the younger ones are at the table or under it.

    Your schoolroom looks very inviting!


  1. […] boys in there at one time. I hadn’t even thought about doing anything different until I saw Brandy’s schoolroom. It’s nice and open! Well, it hadn’t been too long ago that I had made that room our […]
