  1. Love these ideas and you definitely have me inspired to figure out something for our family for this year. I’d love the idea of the vintage desks (which actually our school is having a surplus auction this weekend after they cleaned out the bus barn this summer and found old desks with ink wells that I’ve got my eye on!) but I’m not sure we really have room for that. I need to come up with a caddy of sorts though because it always seemed in the past they kids were getting up and down to get different supplies. This way it is all together and portable to wherever they’re doing their homework.

    1. I love the idea of a homework caddy, Val! Then it won’t take up a ton of space and is easy to pull out to the kitchen island or dining room table or wherever your kids are working on homework. It would be easy to put together!
