Most of the time, my boys do their homework in their bedrooms.
And even though my 10 year old has his own desk, lately he likes to work on his bed. He says he can spread his papers out when he sits there. I figure, as long as he is getting the work done, he can sit wherever he wants!
Since the bed area can be a little dark at night, I recently purchased a new floor lamp to bring some much needed light to the space.
This is the Ballard Designs – Julian Apothecary Floor Lamp. It recently went on sale and I knew it was exactly what I wanted for his room.
The lamp was easy to put together and works well in this corner. My son was thrilled with how much brighter his “work space” has become!
But as you can see, he still has his poster hanging over to the left. I guess that thing is here to stay. You can read about why I decided to let him “help” decorate his room here – Why I Allowed My Son to Hang a Poster. Now that I look at these photos, I am thinking about replacing the other lamp with something a little taller. Maybe by the time he leaves for college I will get this room finished!
Where do your kids do their homework?
