Welcome to the Providence Lodge Home Tour!
In part 6, I am showing you our family room.
This room has been in the process of being modified for a school room over the summer.
We have never had a school room before, always using the dining room table.
One day, it just seemed like a good idea to use this big space upstairs for schooling.
Inspired, I ordered big maps for the wall..(I adore maps)...added school supplies,
a bookshelf for reference books, and our extra table.
This room is open to the stairs and hallway, making it feel much bigger than the 18x15 it is.
The french doors will hopefully eventually lead onto a second floor deck.
This room has functioned as our movie room, play room,
and stringing a sheet across the opening, it becomes a second spare room.
All of our games, puzzles, coloring books, art supplies and notebooks are now stored
on the shelving in the corner.
Each student also has a basket for their books and nature journal.
Just our reference books are on this bookshelf.
I like the idea of having them right at hand.
The rest of our books
(well, except the piles of children's books in the living room)
are down the hall.
At the end of the hall is a cozy spot to read alongside our little library.
Soon, soon we shall see how our new school room works.
The time is just around the corner now.
