It seems like forever now I’ve been trying to find a way to display the girls artwork properly. Art is really all they want to do these days and of course I want to encourage it. That and I’m sick of these things laying all over the house taped to walls, mirrors and anything else that will stand still long enough. I finally found this great system the other day strolling through the IKEA showroom. God I love/hate that place! These were pretty simple to install, but know they do not include hanging hardware, meaning the screws you need. So I suggest taking them to your local hardware store and knowing what kind of wall you’re putting them in, drywall, stud, etc. before you go. Tools I used (and yes, I did this myself) that were game changers were a drill, level, pencil and measuring tape. These all helped me save time and make sure the lines were straight and evenly spaced. As you can see the girls are loving their new “gallery wall” and I’m loving all the bright colors in their new playroom and seeing how proud they are to display their work. This took a little time to do, but it was so worth it. For the end result and also the therapeutic feeling that comes from starting and completing a project and having it come out as well as, or in this case, better than you imagined it would. Don’t you agree? What are some of your favorite labors of love?
