My basement is one step closer to being the fun, cheerful space I want it to be. The addition of a gallery wall of my kids art adds color and whimsy, and brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.
For years I've been meaning to create a display of my kids' artwork. My recent road trip to IKEA kick started the project. I purchased several sizes of RIBBA frames.
I used my tried and true method for gallery wall installation…
First I arrange the pictures on the floor. Then I cut out old grocery bags the size of each frame and tape them to the wall. It's very scientific :)
Normally I would lose my mind measuring the exact location for each nail. But, my brilliant blogging friend Lisa told me to hang them with the 3M command strips.
Boy, am I glad I listened to her! It was the fastest, easiest gallery wall installation ever.
My only regret is that I didn't buy more frames. I could easily fill the entire wall.
This simple little wall makes me so happy! I love looking at my kids' creations. Especially the little handprints… they get me every time!
