I have been lusting after this Awesome Ikea RAskog cart FOREVER! It’s absolutely my favorite color…has wheels and its just the perfect size! (it does come in cream, dark gray and this light blue!)

I put an amazon link because our closest Ikea isn’t close…so it’s cheaper for me to go the amazon route! If you are close to Ikea it’s cheaper AT Ikea!

 

I have a craft room…but often like to spread out in the living room (because that is where the family is) So I thought one of these carts would be great…load it up with the supplies I need and wheel it from room to room.  But as I was on pinterest I noticed that people have been using these cool carts in SO Many clever ways! 

Use it as a cleaning station! That way you can take it with you as you clean! 

 

Hair station

 

As extra closet space for baby

Put it right by your diaper spot

Head here for more fun organizing ideas! 

With school in full swing now and homework starting to make its way into our house, I thought I would try to be a bit more prepared for all the color this, draw that, cut this, glue that directions that most homework begs of us.
Ya’ll remember my love of Ikea’s Raskog kitchen cart from my makeover post here, well, that one is for me…and all my sewing and craft goodness, muahahaha. Can I tell you how much I love that cart? So Dang Much. It’s so handy to have around that I actually went back and bought another one for the kids. It had the makings for a perfect Homework station…and pretend library cart too! (my kids love piling it full of books and wheeling it around the house, checking books out and slapping overdue fines on each other, ha!)

I thought I’d share what I put in ours in case you needed a bit of “Homework Station” inspiration. Up top I have a simple pencil box full of colored pencils, next to it scotch tape, a white-out pen thing-a-ma-bob, and a pencil sharpener.  I also have little jars with kid scissors, crayons, pencils, gluesticks and erasers…you can never have too many erasers, am I right?

In the middle shelf I keep a big jar filled with fat markers, a small glass jar filled with fine tip markers, a mason jar of thick paint brushes, tempura paint, and a box of craft sticks.

The bottom shelf is for extra notebooks, folders, and paper.  I keep a few of these fun plastic paper protectors I found in the Target Dollar Spot. You just slip a piece of paper into them and write on them with erasable markers…perfect for practicing spelling and writing and math!

So there you have it, a simple Homework Station that we can roll into the kitchen, the dining room, or the porch! 
PS. I think right now a lot of stores are clearancing out their Back to School supply sections (at least mine are!) so you may want to head over and stock up for your homework station! I stock up every year!
