DIY Kids Homework Station

One of my goals of 2014 is be more organized. I feel like this is my goal every year but this is the year everything will stick…hopefully. I have been working on a few projects around my house to get me started in the right direction. First, was this DIY Homework Station! I wanted to make over this cute corner in my girls playroom that they can keep all their art supplies and also work on their homework or the latest masterpiece!

DIY Homework Station

The playroom has been needing a uplift for sometime now. With some help of my sister and friend, I repainted the whole room white then I added the black stripes. You can learn how to paint perfect horizontal stripes here.

Kelly Green Desks

How awesome are those cute school desks? I scored those at a local thrift store for only $8 a piece. With the help of some black and kelly green spray paint and of course gold legs these desk were revamped in no time. The girls got the easel for Christmas and it is from Ikea for only $10.

While I was at ikea, I also picked up those cute little storage cups ($1 each) , hanging rod ($2.99) and the magazine rack ($14.99) perfect for keeping everything organized in the corner. I love the magazine rack for holding coloring books! I also got the cute rug at Ikea for only $20. I mean honestly, that’s a crazy great price!

Art Station

I won’t lie, I normally don’t go to Ikea but in the last two months I have been many many times. They have great things for organizing and great prices. (By the way, I am not being paid to say this) 😉
