I would be remiss to not post a picture of this, which is the future homework room.
You have to imagine it without all the furniture (this picture is from the realtor website, so it all belonged to the previous owners) and with the one full wall opposite the three windows repainted with chalkboard paint. SO WE CAN WRITE OUT ALL OUR MATHEMATICAL THEOREMS. Also, we can re-enact that scene from "Apollo 13" where Ed Harris talks about using the moon's gravity to slingshot the astronauts back to earth. I have the NASA-era glasses already! Now I just need to start chain smoking!
No, but seriously, I'll just be glad not to have workbooks and crayons all over the dining room table anymore. Everyone's a winner!
(While on the subject, does anyone have any actual experience with using chalkboard paint? We bought the kind from Benjamin Moore. Any good tips or things we should know before we make a big mess of things?)
