Kids art… the gremlins of household organization. It just keeps multiplying.
In our apartment back in the city, we had two glass interior doors, and I was able to use these bad boys to rotate Eleanor’s art work as it came home from school.
But no glass doors here in the burbs, so I needed another solution. Have I told you I love a flea market? Like in a “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Charlotte with a baby carriage” kind of a way. A couple of weeks ago, I came home with this:
May I present out new art gallery to be. Bear with me, it will be awesome. (I hope.) First step, pull out old hardware (screws and these sharp do-hickeys meant to hold the glass in place). Second step, paint.
Third step, screwing in eyelets on each side of the back of the frame.
Finally, I strung some picture wire between the pairs of eyelets.
I know it doesn’t look like much, but bring in some cute mini-clothes pins (decorated by the folks at Michaels, not me) and insert fabulous artwork!
Now we’re definitely ready for school to start.
