FRIDAY FAVORITES



Craft Homeschool Teacher Desk Space

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is getting into the swing of the school year, whatever that looks like for you and your clan. I am so glad it's Friday. The second week of our homeschool was much better than the first. We didn't have as many appointments this week to interfere so we really were able to dive into our work and get a relaxed schedule going.


I thought it would be fun to do a theme day for the blog, and what better day than Friday! So, Friday Favorites seemed like the natural theme to go for. Let's get started!

 

1. Since this is the start of the school year, I thought I would share my new craft/teaching desk area. 



We received these cabinets for free from our neighbors. I was so excited! 




I got right to work sanding and painting!



I did several coats of primer and several coats of paint.






My not so favorite part: I forgot that I have curious kittens...



It's definitely not perfect (or straight) but I just loving having a space to store all of my craft supplies, my silhouette machine, laptop and still have enough room to correct the kids schoolwork. Speaking of school, this is the school planner I use. I've used this same planner for 6 years now. I love the simplicity, plenty of space for all of my kids assignments and it's cheap!



Organized drawers make me happy!




So much storage! The only thing left to do is install handles. I am so indecisive, so that will probably take me a while.   


2. I know I don't typically post about fashion, and truly my talent in that area is sorely lacking, but I couldn't resist sharing these shoes

Not sure what I'm doing in this pic, but it shows the shoes :)

I am normally not a shoe girl, but I LOVE these sandals! I've seriously gotten so many compliments on them. I may have to order another color here soon. Ya know, before it becomes boot season. I absolutely love Fall, but I would rather be in flip flops than boots any day.


3. Tis the season for lots of fuzzy throws! 




We all love snuggling up with blankets in this house! I am obsessed with these throws from khol's! I love getting their holiday themed ones. 




My kids are always stealing them though. Apparently I need to buy more. Right now I am considering this one or this one. So many cute options! Does anyone else have way too many throws in their house? Please tell me I'm not alone! Just after I typed this my husband came home from grocery shopping at Costco and bought me another throw :) I think he's a keeper! Now I need to go and break up a fight over said blanket. Apparently buying more throws doesn't protect me against little thieves. But I am willing to keep trying ;) 




4. Baskets! I don't know why I am obsessed with cute baskets, but I am. I love these baskets so much. They're decorative, but useful. At least that's what I told my husband after he saw the price tag. I'm not sure he agreed with me. I loved having them out to use as decoration, unfortunately our kittens thought it was a perfect scratching post. So now they reside safely in our pantry. 


Anyways, that's all for now. I will be back soon with another couple projects that we are currently working on. I can't wait to share them with you!

Let me know what you think about Friday Favorites. Would you like to see more posts like this in the future?


Have a blessed weekend!
