My second grader has just started back to school, and we usually have a little homework to do each evening. While the homework is not difficult, what can be difficult is finding somewhere in our home where there are no distractions.
She has a desk in her room where she sits to complete her homework.
There are a lot of things I like about this set up, but there are also a lot of things I would like to improve upon.
Her desk is actually pretty neat.
We are currently using a repurposed shoe box (covered with pretty paper and embellished with a book plate) and a crate to corral her desk items.
I also created this super cute French memo board to hold her pictures and papers for school (more about that later).
So what more does her desk need?
Emorie’s desk currently has no lighting. I am looking for one of these little gooseneck lamps, preferably one with a USB charging port for her tablet.

2. Pencil/pen/art utensil storage
Right now, Emorie’s pens, pencils and other writing odds and ends are housed in this white crate, which is more suited for reading books and magazines.
This is simply too much in that white crate. Instead, I’d like to do something like this:
I have both a dowel rod and curtain hardware, and an extra towel bar. I also already have buckets. I could easily use either one of those things to create this for her desk. Plus, it’d be super cute and she’d be able to find things soooo much easier.
3. Comfy seating

Emorie’s chair isn’t uncomfortable, but it could be better. I love these cute, comfy cushions from PB Kids.
Stay tuned for some big changes to Mrs. Emorie’s homework space. Here’s a look at what’s coming up the rest of this week:
Friday: Repurposed farmhouse decor
Saturday: Simplify that paper clutter
Sunday: I DON’T Have it All Together…and that’s OK
Have a wonderful week.
