Hi everyone! As most of you know, we’ve moved our school room to the basement, and so today I’m sharing our updated homeschool room tour with you! We have moved things around from last year just for a little change and we love it!


I want to start off by saying that you by no means need to have a dedicated “classroom” in order to homeschool. You can literally homeschool anywhere you have space and wherever you prefer. We often pack up and head to the library to do school, sometimes we end up in the living room, and other times we head outside. It really depends on the day and our mood!

That said, I do have a setup school area that we use the majority of the time. It works well for our family and we’re thankful to have this space! So I thought it would be fun to take a little tour and show you how we have it all set up now that we’ve moved!

For more details on our school desk setup. Ikea discontinued the table tops I purchased, but they replaced them with the Linnmon Table Tops, white. I think everything else is the same. Here are links to the desk pieces.


As promised, here are some links to the products mentioned in this video and a few other products we’ve used in our homeschool:

For those of you wondering about our birdies, they’re still upstairs in the old location which has now become my sewing room! I was worried the basement might get cold, and so we kept them upstairs in the room their familiar with. So now I have tweety songs to listen to while I sew Smile



Happy Homeschooling!


  1. Your 2018 homeschool room is beautiful! Two questions:
    1) Could you please share the paint colors you used for the walls, trim/door, and cupboards?
    2) Where did you purchase the cupboards?
    Thanks so much!

  2. I’m curious what kind of fireplace you have? We’re moving to a state with snow in the next month, and hopefully with a basement! The look of your fireplace is nice and I’m in the market! Thanks!

  3. Your home school room is wonderful !! Just wondering if you could give me some hints about how to preserve real leaves ! My own children & their children are almost grown !! I just returned from a trip to Oregon ! I want to preserve some leaves & etc I brought back home with me .Thanks, for your time & advice if you can help .

  4. Hi Erica!
    We have a similar set up with the Ikea desks…just moved into a new home and smaller space so trying to figure out how to re-organize and consolidate. Do you use a dry erase board during your daily lessons with your kiddos for math, etc.? What about for All About Spelling/Reading? I had 2 3×2 white boards, one for the magnetic letter tiles and one for other lessons, but I really need some wall space for storage to keep things above my toddler’s reach :/. LOL.

    1. We used to use a dry-erase board for our AAS lessons, but we don’t use that now that they’re older, so no. But I did make good use of our magnetic dry-erase board when they were younger!

  5. Hey Erica,
    What pieces did you use to make the end desks against the wall and under the cabinets? Also, are those IKEA cabinets? Thanks so much! We don’t have space for the big desk table you made, but the configuration against the wall might work! So pretty!
