Happy Monday Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We actually got to relax and explore our city a little which was a nice change of pace.
Today I wanted to share with you a design board that I created for an amazing friend of mine. She is a mother of four and is currently home schooling two children so I really wanted to do something for her. She is an incredible mom and teacher and I am in awe of how well she does both. And, did I mention that her kids are like little baby Einteins!?!?
They just moved into a new home that is perfect for their family but it is a DIY work in progress. They've done so much already, painted cabinets and walls, but with the school year approaching they wanted to focus on their new home school room.
The room is in the front of the home when you walk in so it has to be organized and pretty yet still fun and playful for the kiddos. We're also going to use a lot existing furnishings and accessories so that is exciting for this DIY girl!
When I started the board I was excited but nervous because I've never designed this type of room before. But I'm fresh off completing my studio office makeover so at least I was in 'workspace' mode :) You can see my office reveal here.
I knew when I found out we would be working on the home school room that I'd draw my inspiration from one of my favorite bloggers EVER: The Handmade Home. Ashley and Jamin created a stunning and creative room for home schooling their own children and I've loved it since the first time I saw it. You can read about it here.
Our color palette is going to be a little more muted than our board shows, more like Ashley and Jamin's space, but I think we're off to a good start!
I'm also drawing inspiration from the DIY pegboard that Katie from Punk Projects created. Check out how she made hers here. You gotta love a functional pegboard painted super cute!
What do you think? Do you think design boards are helpful when trying to pull a room together? If so you're in luck because I have some BIG news coming soon!
