#DIY Farmhouse Desk for the Office area, her blog states it only uses approximately $50 to $55 to make and it's done very simply with clean lines. This is definitely a must do for the small room becoming the office!!
As your children get into their teen years, it becomes more and more necessary for them to have a space to do homework in. Giving them a board to pin notes, etc. to will help them keep organized (as well as providing a space for them to express themselves without going crazy over your walls!). Make sure you talk to them about internet safety if they have a computer in their room though!
