This is my desk project. It was put together with Expedit bookshelves from IKEA, a solid core door (which I painted and polyeurythaned), and storage inserts also from IKEA. I think it turned out rather nicely if I do say so myself!
Simple sayings posted around the room. "You will always stand taller when you kneel to help a child." "Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens" "The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery" "You may not see the fruit of today's work, but you have seeded a lifetime of knowledge." "Inspire." "Love." "Encourage."... This would totally go in my office or classroom!
for now the kitchen table and art station will do but someday when we have room would love for the kids to have the ultimate kids art desk! -- just need to old enough to know where to put things back and how to use supplies properly (as in: not to paint and draw on the walls)!
