Gallery Wall--Children's Artwork
I realized that though I shared pics of the fishy gallery wall in my son's bedroom, I hadn't shared the others we've done.
A couple of years ago, we filled an empty wall in our family room with the artwork the kids had created in school and in a beloved after-school art class. About six months before the "installation," I started buying Studio Decor brand frames at Michael's whenever they were on sale (and when an extra 20 or 25% off could be taken off sale prices). I chose black frames with off-white mats and placed the artwork inside as best I could. Sometimes I could only highlight one part of a piece.
End result is a wall that is personal to our family and has great pops of color. Is it a lot of nails in the wall? You betcha. You're either okay with that or you're not. I figure we're stuck with this for a while (though I can always change out what's inside the frames). I'm not planning to move ever again, but if I do, I trust I can find a good painter who can also fill all those holes.
