Probably like most of you, my home is constantly being inundated with artwork, certificates, drawings, and projects that my kids are hard at work making (and are so proud of). I just love ages 3 and 4 and all that comes with it, including the adorable “art”. I am not a huge saver, only saving one or two things from each year of preschool, but I do love to enjoy their work for a little while. I love my kids, but I don’t love clutter :)
I decided to come up with a way I could enjoy the artwork for a little while and quickly change it out as I please. I knew I wanted this place to be in the mudroom. We use this room so often and it seemed suited for “kid stuff” since we already have little shoes and little backpacks and little sweatshirts hanging from all of the hooks.
The display system includes only two items: tension rods and curtain clips. Super easy, inexpensive, and takes about 2 minutes to set up. For reference, the large door on the right is off the garage, and the door on the left is to the bathroom.
I purchased the black tension rods at Hobby Lobby. They are less than $4 each, and I bought them all when they were half off. I already had the curtains clips from my shower curtain curtains in our old house (also from Hobby Lobby). Total for this art display cost me less than $10. It is almost impossible to get a good picture in this space, as it doesn’t get a lot of natural light!
The reality is that I have small kids, and I love the whimsy the artwork brings to the space. And the kids absolutely love having a place to display their masterpieces!!
