Love the pieces on the table! DIY Dining Table - Free plans to build this Restoration Hardware table. LOVE IT. For when my dining room isn't a kid's toy room.
I love this magnet board for student whereabouts. Students are responsible for moving their number when they leave the room. The teacher is then able to know where each student is at all time.
The Domestic Geek: Dollar Store Refrigerator Makeover. Trip to the dollar store :)
Use a low dresser in the dining room or kitchen (rather than extra cabinets). Great in place of a sideboard/buffet or coffee/breakfast bar.
