|I need to touch up the walls still.|
I changed things up a little in the homeschool room. I really needed a dry erase board to help me focus on a few key things during the week. I didn't however want the room to look to much like a classroom so I ended up painting some black Pottery barn frames that I already had with an antique finish and putting maps from Ballard design in them. I used a sheet of scrapbook paper for the middle one with notes for violin practice. I also hung the violins to make practicing daily easier. I like how it turned out. It's much more functional and still feels like a home instead of a classroom.
For our Classical Conversations Christmas party, Tony cut wood discs so the students could make Christmas ornaments. I love having a handy husband! It was fun and they turned out great.
We have started renovations on our new family doll house. I wish it was vintage but it's not. It is however in need of a huge makeover which is exactly what I was looking for. We found it on Craigslist and Nate went to work on the electrical problems right away. This will be a fun project we will enjoy as a family for many months. I have been wanting to do a dollhouse renovation ever since I first saw my sweet friend Corey's doll house collection. If you love vintage you should check out her site. She is absolutely amazing!
I whipped up a nook cover for a Christmas gift and started painting this vintage chair I found. It doesn't look like much but I love this chair! Notice the slats on the bottom for holding books? I have a special plan in mind for this lovely chair so I'm hoping to finish it up over Christmas break. The flowers are for a wreath I'm creating for the front porch.
I hope you are having a wonderful time with your family this Christmas season!
