Well. It's almost complete! There are a few walls that are still bare, but overall the main renovation is complete!!!

I am super excited to have my own space just for tutoring. I should have done this years ago!!!!!! My students are LOVING the new space and so am I!!! Everything is super organized and I have plenty of room for everything.. Including my laptop! All of the furniture came from IKEA. The white board is just a shower board from Lowes ( $13.00). The boards usually last me about 3-4 years. Not bad, huh?

I almost tossed the TV entertainment system, but after some research ( on Pinterest. Lol), I decided to prime it and paint it. It turned out great. The only problem is that the paint is peeling in a few places. But, overall, I'm happy with it. I also decided to keep my table. It was pretty nasty so I just repainted the table-top red. I had some leftover paint from my kitchen table project.

The wall with letters was super fun. Almost all of the letters came from Hobby Lobby. This was my first project to use Mod-Podge. Yeah. I'm hooked on that now!

I'm thinking about using the big wall in the play area to make a wall with calendars- bulletin boards for each of the kids. Just a place where we can stay organized. I am learning that the key to raising four busy children is organization!!!! Otherwise, we run around like crazy people.

Enjoy the pics.


  1. Aimee I am LOVING IT!!!!! Do you not love those shelves from IKEA?!?! Bryan and I keep thinking of places where we could use another set! Ha! Great job!! Enjoy your space!!

  2. You have been on my mind lately!! Imagine my joy to see that you had posted some new entries to your blog recently. I don't check often but think of you VERY often and am so glad to be able to "see" you and catch up with your bunch. Love the make-over. I just joined Pinterest 3 days ago and I am H-O-O-K-E-D! Loving it!

    Miss you! We are well here. Lilly started 1st grade and both boys are going to Mom's Morning Out a few days a week so just keeping busy. We are happy and blessed. My 3 are a bundle of fun and energy (in a word...they are WILD!!), we are enjoying them soooo much. Levi is doing GREAT! His last surgery was in May; we had a hospital stay in June for a nasty virus but since then he is doing fantastic. You wouldn't believe what a miracle he is. God has revealed Himself to me in a million and more ways since beginning this journey with Levi.

    Anyway, miss you my sweet Aimee. Keep posting on your blog and I will keep checking in.

    Love you!
