We decided on black paint for the metal bases of the desks, but we wanted to get some input from the kiddos on the wooden seats and backs. So we gave them the colors from this set of vintage books to choose from.The Princess chose blue and Mr. B chose green. I thought that was funny since The Princess has a green room and Mr. B's is blue. The desktops are painted with chalkboard paint. The chalkboard on the wall also got a fresh coat of paint.
I also repainted their table and chair set. It has been used more that I could have ever imagined and had so many crayon marks and scratches on it. Plus I needed an excuse to paint something red!You should have seen me painting this set in the backyard when our neighbors white dog jumped over the fence to come and play. Talk about pandemonium! LOL
So I think we're just about ready to start school on Monday. Not that I have any delusions that they are going to sit at these desks all day and do school work. I'm sure we'll be all over the house at times, but I'm looking forward to it!
(How do you think my state plates turned out around the top of the room? I like them!)
