Oh happy day! I finally did it! I finally finished the boys’ art gallery wall that I have been wanting to do for a couple years now. It was on my to-do list since Jordan’s first artwork from when he was only 8 months old & was still in daycare.
I remembered it again while I was shopping at The Land of Nod last weekend and saw their girly art clips for $15. I knew that it was about time to get this project checked off my mile long to-do list. So I went to our local craft store and bought a cheap black string and few wooden cut-outs. I didn’t need to buy the wooden clothespin because I have a bunch sitting in my laudry room. I used the wooden cut-outs as accents and to hide the nails that holds the string on each end. I spent less than $5 by making it myself. As for the words, I initially thought of painting the wall but I knew Michael wasn’t going to like it so I just used vinyl letters instead.
Next on my list is a chalk board wall. I’m thinking of turning the bottom half of that wall into a chalk board. I already found the supplies – I just need to make up my mind whether I want it to be that permanent or if I should just use a huge frame. What do you guys think?
