2016 Back to School DIY Projects Brookfield Residential

Backpacks are full of new school supplies, school schedules are out and the anticipation of being back to school draws near.  Here are some DIY tips to get the family ready for the new school year!

Get everything organized with a mini homework station. This DIY project offers a home for all the miscellaneous pens, pencils and paper clips and keeps them off the floor in a stylish and fun way. Add a small motivational poster to make the space even more inviting for homework time.

Make sweet eyelet-bound notebooks for your little ones to take to school. Get your kids and supplies together, choose designs and enjoy the last moments of summer with the whole family.

Place a library book basket on top of a bookshelf to keep school books separate from your home collection. This short guide will walk you through adding a fashionable leather label to the basket and keep you from searching for any overdue books at the end of the year!

File homework and school papers in an easy-to-reach spot for both you and your children. Use a wall rack and some beautifully designed folders to create a place for papers to go throughout the school year.
