Ta - Da! Our new art wall!

After months of drooling over this picture, I finally put up our new art wall. Don't you just love it? It was the best $50 I ever spent!. Each of the kids have their own designated "wire" and a number of clips so they have to rotate their art in order to make them fit. It is brilliant.

Ready to do your own? To do three wires, you are going to need 3 sets of these:

And a pack or two of these (you'll probably want at least two packs):

It was a little tricky to install since it did not come with the wall screws. You have to take the curtain wire set to the hardware store so you can buy the screws that will fit them for mounting. You will also need a wire cutter to cut the wire to the desired length. And lastly, you need to measure your wire spacing evenly and make sure that they are straight. It sounds like a lot of work and it is but trust me, it is worth it! Your kids will love having their art displayed on the wall so fashionably! Let me know if you do it - I would love to see YOUR wall!
