It is not done. But it's usable! Oh happy day!
We worked hard all weekend to get the room ready. Last week I painted the wall red so it would be ready for the bookcase. All the boys helped put it together. And they really did help!
While the boys worked on the bookcase, daughter G painted the back of the built in bookcase red. I will later paint the side walls black so that it matches the other bookcases.
Anchoring it to the wall.
The moving of books and organizing our stuff was something only I could do. Though I have more to do, I did get a lot accomplished over the weekend. And it's wonderful to be able to access all of our books again! I found two books we can use this very week as we are studying the Mongols and Marco Polo.
Here is the school table, no longer covered with tools but covered with math books instead!
And here is MY desk.... usable space once again!
This shows the length of the schoolroom, with the new bookcase and my desk at the far back.
The couch is still covered with stuff.... but it will all find a home eventually!
So, so thankful to have an organized space in which to work again!
