Since we've moved into this house, I've wanted a creative way to display Anna's artwork. She is constantly creating, so the art is always changing, and I've been searching for a way to easily take the older pictures down and put up newer ones. I finally found what I was looking for. Our new art boards were inspired by a book on my bedside table, The Creative Family, and a pin on Pinterest.
Last weekend we bought an 8 foot, 1x4 wood board, some primer, paint, a few screws, picture hangers, sandpaper, and some binder clips. We had Lowe's cut the board in half for us. Blake primed and painted the boards. I sanded the edges to give them a distressed look. Then Blake put the picture hangers on the back and screws equally spaced on the front. Once the boards were hanging on the wall, I placed the binder clips, with artwork, on the screws. Simple - although it did take some time over the course of two weekends.
Next up...a way to organize all the art supplies around here.
