I am currently in the process of giving our playroom an organizational makeover. You might be thinking makeover-schmakeover, kids still make it a very messy space by the end of the day. I do agree, but now everything will have its own labeled home so clean up is more effective and I stay just a little more sane.
Task One: Organize Artwork
With Jackers in school now, we have a lot (a lot) of artwork flowing into our house. It's great and I love it! I love seeing Jack's creative mind at work, finally! Arts and crafts have never been big on Jack's list of to-do's. His top three daily to-do's usually consist of running, jumping off the furniture, and climbing on anything he can. Arts and crafts get an "ehhhh, maybe?" Well, times are a changing around here and this Momma is loving it.
With all this artwork coming home, I needed a place to display it other than the refrigerator. I found these signs (under my bed, of all places) that I bought years ago and was no longer using.
I sanded them down.
Hired a painter.
My painter painted them white with a little help from his Momma.
He did a great job when he wasn't being distracted my moths, caterpillars, and grasshoppers.
I distressed the wood and sprayed it with a clear coating spray.
I then applied the vinyl that I had ordered from Wonderfully Wordy.
Yes, I do realize we need to get working on some art for Owen's side!
Now the hanger system underneath, I saw this idea somewhere out in blogland, but after searching (and searching) I cannot find or even remember which specific blog I found this idea from.
It's consists of three simple things:
2. small screw eyes
*I bought a kit at Target that contains different types of picture hangers, it included both the wire and small screw eyes.
I love it!
Jack likes looking at his art and he likes talking about 'the history' of each piece.
Makes my little man proud....and me too!
And just cuz...
