Hi Sandra, I think you should get large tables that are very sturdy. I
love mine except that they have rubber bumpers which the kids can't seem
to resist carving into and picking on. I love them since I can re-arrange
the room -I do it often. I had stools and got rid of them--they tip
over too easily. I got plastic chairs that are stackable so we can
get them out of the way and wash them in the sink etc. I think you
should go for the darkroom and then get a digital camera also. You
can always get the camera but carving out spaces later is usually
impossible. The kids will be taking pictures all their lives--and
most won't have access to digital cameras --at least until the price
comes down. Get the Sony one that uses a floppy instead of the
cheaper ones which have to take up a port. If you don't have lots
of computers the digital will be expensive and not very usable. I
turn my whole room into a darkroom and build pinhole cameras and
do photograms and direct exposure stuff with darkroom. The kids love
it and they really learn a lot about positive and negative and
light and dark and composition and contrast--and also the chemical
stuff. Go for it all if you can, but definitely the darkroom--remember
you can sneak in there during lunch and have a nap when you really have a
headache! Sid
