Kids Art Display

Remember the half finished art center for the kids that I posted about a couple of weeks ago?  Well, I am finally getting around to finishing my last couple of projects.  First up is the new art display wall.

Easy idea for a kid's art display!
I wanted to create something that could be easily changed and I was going for an industrial-type look {think Restoration Hardware}.  I bought some clipboards from the dollar store and spray painted them a dark silver metallic color {sorry – it didn’t actually have a color name on the spray can}  It was kind of hard to get a picture that truly shows the color but it really does have a true metal look.

Using my fabulous, punch through anything, Crop-O-Dile, I punched a hole in each corner and added some screw brads {I have had these forever but I have seen them fairly recently at Michaels}  You really can not tell them apart from real screws.

The numbers are vinyl cut on the Silhouette.

For the letters I used some old styrofoam alphabet mats that we have had hanging around for about 6 years now.  Look familiar?

A little spray paint magically transforms them!  I really like the texture with the metallic paint.

And there is my easy art display.  The art work can quickly be changed up and the kids are trying really hard to make some art projects that are good enough to make it to the wall!  And everything was attached to the wall with Command strips – I hate holes in my walls!
