Hi everyone! As most of you know, we recently moved. And I’ve had a ton of requests to see our new homeschool room setup!
Obviously we brought all of our furniture with us, so it’s fairly similar to before. But the new room is a tad smaller, so I did make a few adjustments to the layout.
So without further ado…here’s our Updated Homeschool Room Tour!
Here is the entry to our room. I have my little reading bench, calendar area, and a few posters on that wall.
As you can see most of my room is setup as it was before, so there aren’t any really drastic changes. I did clean out a bunch of the clutter, so believe it or not, there is actually less stuff on my shelves than before! Of course I kept the white board, and my favorite Ikea Expedit Shelving unit.
There has been a change since I filmed the video! Actually it was only a few days after of course!
But most of you know, we added two little budgies to our room! I’ll have a post introducing you to Remi and Kiwi coming soon!
Once we moved the birds into the room, we needed to rearrange some of the furniture so they had a safe place to set.
Below you can see our school desk setup. I have a whole post on our Ikea desk units you can check out. They discontinued the table tops I purchased, but they replaced them with the Linnmon Table Tops, white.
I moved my desk and reading incentives over to this corner. I actually like it better this way too, so I’m glad we made the switch.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed our new schoolroom setup. So far, so good for us!

The new school room looks lovely. I didn’t see the colored drawer carts that you used for workboxes. Did you do away with those? Just curious. 🙂 Also on the Alex drawer units….-do the deeper drawers work or are they too deep in your opinion to use as workboxes? I am thinking of purchasing them but wanted your opinion since you’ve owned them for a while.
I love your desk and I’m going to head to IKEA soon to do the same thing. I was just wondering if the larger adult JULES chair would fit under the desk. I have 3 kids and wanted to use the fourth area as my own desk. Do you think that would work? Thanks for the inspiration!
Where did you get your huge dry erase board?? I want one!!
Wow! I love your classroom! I have a quick question for you or anyone who would like to help – how do you keep your 1 year old, 2 year old, or 3 year old from pulling things off of the shelves, getting into the art supplies, wanting to climb on the table to play with the pens and pencils? I feel like I need to put everything high up. I currently have our art supplies and books in a locked closet, but would love to have things out and more visual like in your photos. Thank you!
Love your school room. Copied your table! And we love it. What size is your whiteboard?
Erica~ I looked at IKEA online and I cannot find the expedit shelves… do you know if they still sell them. If not do they have anything comparable?
I’ve been told they aren’t selling the 5×5 ones anymore, just the 4×4 and I think they changed the name to KALLAX for some reason, but here’s a link: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30275861/
Love this clean, organized look. Thank you so much for the details on how you set this up, and where you purchased products from. I appreciate your organizational skill, much!
I love your blog and your room! I was wondering if you could tell me the size of your white board and if it is magnetic? Thank you!! =)
I love your room…looks great! Looks very much like ours, because we use many of the same pieces from ikea 😉 I was wondering if you could elaborate on your “finished work tray” that’s next to your bird cages. Do you keep all of their finished assignments in this tray, one for each child and not separated by subject? And you said that you rubber band it all and take it down to basement storage..is that correct? …I may be having a lightbulb moment, lol! This seems like such a great idea…I have been trying to separate my children’s work by subject in binders but I get behind, then it takes me forever to catch up. We live in TX, so I don’t have to keep anything or show anyone, but I’d still like to save it and store it.
Yes, after they’ve completed a worksheet, they put it on my desk. I grade them whenever I have a break in teaching during the day, then hand them back for corrections. Once all corrections are made, I put them in the file bins by the birds. Once those bins get full I rubber band each student’s papers together, then keep them in a box in the basement. I have a box for each student in the basement (the older kids have 2 boxes, and will continue to grow as work fills up).
