Daydreaming in Class

After only three weeks of school is it more than obvious that the small desk/my grandmothers old sewing table is not going to cut it for our home study days. It is very small and doesn't have allot of storage. I see the need in not only a bigger desk but a separate classroom area, something to separate us from the rest of the house. A room the Poopoo and Slinky can walk into and know that its time to learn. 
We have a fourth bedroom/ hoarding room that I dream of soon transforming into the perfect homeschool classroom, first I must take care of the mounds of junk being stored in there. I would take a before picture but it would be way to embarrassing!
I received my Pottery Barn Kids magazine in the mail the other day and i could feel my wheels starting to spin just by looking at the cover. Its no secret Pottery Barn has the coolest classroom furniture there is, but its also not in this frugal mommas budget! Here are a couple inspiration pics.

Where do I start the Supply storage on picture one, the extremely awesome work desk on page two. Imagine both the boys being able to work face to face, the incredibly cute chevron rug on picture three, or the chalkboard/ wipe board combo on page four. I love all these ideas the challenge is finding a way to put it together in a similar and cheaper fashion. 
I also had this neat idea of making a solar system out of paper lanterns to hang from the ceiling. I think this will be a fun, cheap project that will have a huge impact.

Hopefully I can get started soon and turn my classroom daydream into a reality:)
