Tips For Setting up the Ideal Homeschool Workstation
Basic tour of our homeschool set up for now. This workstation is where I do the majority of our book work, writing, and everything hands on. We might move into the living room or back yard for reading, science, or the kitchen for math, etc. just wherever the lesson takes us! This is where our original school room was and what it looked like as well as this vide about my homeschool plans. (both of these are older videos)
I think I covered everything in the video but if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them! I’ve been homeschooling on and off for a couple of decades now. I definitely don’t have everything figured out but this workstation is one of the best investments I’ve made in our school supplies!
Not only does it make an excellent workstation for school but also for art, crafts, eating, etc. It has saved my dining room table a lot of wear and tear too! I’m not a huge fan of the chairs as they are really only good for smaller students, they are perfect for kids but not so much for teens or adults. Also, they go up and down and round and round so if you don’t like that, or wheels, skip the chairs. I prefer to stand up at my desk!
Like I said in the video, I am not an affiliate for IKEA and neither have I been sponsored or paid by them in any way. The links are just so you can find the parts that we used to put together our workstation.

Reading Tracker Pack Kitten & Sloth
Help kids keep track of how much they’ve read with this adorable kitten or sloth reading tracker. This pack contains a set of two which can be printed as many times as you like.
Thanks for sharing. Would you be able to tell how the two table tops pieces are kept together? Any type of glue or something used, leg underneath, etc? Does the table top rest on the Alex shelves or is there some adhesive? Take care.
My husband used some small brackets he found at the hardware store to keep the two pieces from sliding. They have two holes, and he used small screws that wouldn’t go all the way through. I think he has 4 of them. When we move the table he takes the little brackets off.
I put a piece of that spongy shelf liner on top of the shelf/drawers before I add the table tops to keep them in place better, but I did this AFTER we moved them the second time. They are heavy enough that they really didn’t slip, but the extra cusion is nice too.
Hope that helps!
