When we started homeschooling 6 years ago my oldest was in kindergarten. We had a 6 cube shelf, a desk, and an easel. We didn’t need a lot in our room and this was perfect!

Over the years I’ve added another desk, bookcases, books, and a lot of resources. It’s been so fun transforming the room to fit our needs.
Our homeschool room is right off of our foyer with no door. So I like to keep the room fairly organized and visually appealing since there is a large opening to the room. When you first walk in there is a large wall full of beautiful Cavallini Papers from Two Hands Paperie. I made all 8 poster hangers for $20! I have a tutorial saved on a highlight in my Instagram stories called Poster Hangers if you want to check it out.
On the floor I have a book display holding all of our library books. I like to keep our library books separate so I don’t forget to take them back when they’re due.
The desk and chair are from Target. The desktop organizer is from Hobby Lobby. My girls keep pencils, scissors, glue sticks, and erasable pens inside the organizer for easy access. Inside their desk drawers they have their own sets of colored pencils, glue, extra pens, sticky note tabs, some activity books, and other little things they want quick access to. The desktop alphabet chart is from my Etsy shop.
The 3-tiered cart is from Michael’s. I took the top tier off because I didn’t really need all 3 tiers and it was going to be too tall and cover the posters.
The top tier has 3 magazine holders from The Container Store. My daughters each have one with their workbooks in them. I have one with my teachers manuals.
The bottom tier has our Juniper Grove travelers journals and Bibles. My daughters have spelling, science, memory verses, and nature journal inserts. I’m using mine as a planner. I have a monthly and weekly planner as well as a meal plan and habit tracker inserts. These journals are perfect for a small space instead of a bunch of large, loose notebooks.
The bamboo box is from Ikea and holds flash cards.
The white bookcases are the Liatorp bookcases from Ikea. I have the shelves organized by category. The top shelves are for nature books and resources. The bottom shelves hold all of our handicraft supplies.
The next shelf holds some wooden boxes full of embroidery floss and other embroidery supplies.
The basket is from Hobby Lobby and full of embroidery projects and hoops. I’ve had it for years so I can’t seem to find a link for it. Beside the basket is a wooden para cord bracelet maker. I have large embroidery hoops and weaving looms leaning on the back of the shelf.
The bamboo box holds other small handicrafts and supplies.
The small photo box is from The Container Store and holds needle felting supplies. The green box is from Target but is no longer sold. It holds fabric.

The books are from the Golden Library of Knowledge collection.
The next shelf has a place value board and ten frame board from Treasures from Jennifer. As well as a number line from Bless This Homeschool. The small wooden and felt balls are being held in the cutest glass jars with a wooden lid and spoon from Hobby Lobby. The larger glass jar with wooden lid and spoon behind it is from the Target dollar section and holds larger felt balls.

The next shelf holds our language arts resources. We have word builders and letter tiles, a Venn diagram, and parts of speech board all from Bless This Homeschool. The letter tiles are being held in a glass jar with a wooden lid from Target. The parts of speech tiles are in a Oui yogurt container and both are sitting on a small basket tray from Target. The one I have is no longer available but here is one from the same collection. The bamboo box holds our Greek and Latin flash cards.
