With two of my kids just beginning elementary school we have more than plenty of artwork around the house. For the longest time I didn't know what to do with all of it. I hated having it piled up all over the house and the kids would cry if they ever saw me throwing something away. This art gallery has saved me.
I got the idea from SUTTON GRACE. It's made from the DIGNITET curtain wire, from IKEA. Sutton Grace has a cheaper version on her blog. I love this for two reasons. The first, because it solved my artwork problem. The kids are thrilled to have there pictures displayed and don't mind taking one down too make room for the new.
The Second reason is that I had these huge empty walls in our mud room. I had the idea of filling them by framing my kids artwork. But I didn't want to frame just any artwork. I wanted to frame my favorites. It would take years to fill the walls with framed art work. The wire rod System gave me an inexpensive way to fill them fast.
I'll still be framing my favorites, but I can do it at my pace now.
I love these seasonal pieces my son did. I wish you could see the detail.
By-the-way I hung this all by myself. I thought I needed my husbands help, but got sick of waiting for him. It's been two months and hasn't fallen yet.
