With only a month until we start schooling full-time again, I find that my school room is in need of a serious make-over. We spend about 40 hours a week in here and I want it to be a place of comfort and learning. But I need suggestions on how to do that.
I am already thinking about replacing the desks with long tables. That'll (hopefully) eliminate desk clutter. And I know I want to paint. When we moved in four years ago, this room was lavendar with bright pink trim. The ceiling is still lavendar, but the walls only have primer on them.
I am activitely getting rid of things in here, and have donated about four garbage bags of goods from this room in the last month. And I mean the BIG trash bags, not the wimpy kitchen ones.
The closet seen here has long shelves that extend about 18 inches into both sides of the opening. Is it worth opening up that space, or would that add to the cluttered look? What else can I do to maximize space and minimize clutter? I am also looking to save on costs as I don't have a ton of money to invest in this room.
