You know how sometimes, something that seems rather simple leaves you in a quandary! Do I want the whiteboard horizontal or vertical? I just couldn’t make peace with either decision. I know, there are real problems out there, but ithat whiteboard is an important part of our life!
My husband came up with this great solution. I could have BOTH! He found these nifty little hooks at Lowes. These hooks have one part on the wall and another on the back of the board. He arranged it so I can turn it either way. You can see the stray vertical clips above and below the whiteboard. He added some shims on the back to stabilize it for nicer writing. I’m so spoiled!
To the right of the whiteboard is a closet. It already had some customized shelving in it. So husband added some shelves in it, with a space for each of the 4 year plans for our Tapestry of Grace Curriculum. I stole drawers from other places in the house, and we now have some space for basic school supplies, thinking games, paper, and the like. I also have storage for books (purple containers) for our “real” books as we finish with them this year. As I deposit them there, I plan to make sure I have them recorded in http://www.LibraryThing.com so when we hit it again in 4 years I know what we have!
Husband dear is now working on a solution as to where the younger boys can book their schoolbooks while writing on their little all-in-one old fashioned wooden elementary school desks. Can’t wait to show you the end result. Ok. I can’t wait for the boys to use the end result! But I’ll share it when it’s ready!
