With 5 children, we budget a TON. I refuse to purchase furniture new with the kiddoes either. Yard Sales 100% for their rooms.
last Friday, I picked up these 2 semi matching dressers at an estate sale for $10 each. (Then went to Ace Hardware here in Chino and matched pink paint to their pillowcase.
So they went from THIS:
To become matching dressers for the “Little Girls’ Room:
With kids school and my school, my work and Lar’s work, moving and unpacking, it has been quite a chore to get our house into the “Our House” feel. This week, however, the kids and I started putting their classroom together. We have converted the formal dining room into a classroom for the kids. Pictures on the finished classroom to come next week because I am not quite finished yet.
At the beginning of this week I started cutting vinyl for our walls – Here are what we have cut so far that are up already.
Above the piano in the classroom, is the alphabet for Berlyn. He is starting to learn in, so we needed that up.I promise that it is straight on the wall. 😉
Above the calendar/assignment wall is a saying that we tell the kids all the time, especially if one of them are in trouble. 🙂 – Tomorrow is a New Day!
On another wall we added something else that we tell the kids all of the time (haven’t added Albert Einstein to the bottom of this one yet)
Then, in our laundry room (I have always wanted to decorate a laundry room and now I have a HUGE one!!)
This move is taking a toll on me. I am so tired with school and kiddletts and their school. Sometimes I feel like I need to clone myself, but I don’t have time for that either! 🙂 I did find the box with all of my bathroom decorations!!! So, Hello RED, WHITE and BLUE!!! The bathroom isn’t quite finished (It is a bit bigger than our last guest bath, so I think that I need a few more things on the walls.). I do need to find a shower curtain that fits a claw foot tub circular curtain rod. I also want to put vinyl back up like I had at the other house.
