Now 2.5 years old, Clara has been bringing home some masterpieces from art time at daycare. I’d love to display them somewhere, but am a bit baffled as to the best way to do so. I’m a big fan of gallery walls with Ribba frames from Ikea – they’re cheap enough that I don’t mind when someone accidentally knocks a piece off the wall, and the frame or the glass breaks. So I was thinking of doing a gallery wall with Ikea frames, and then I remembered this blog post from Apartment Therapy from a few years ago, featuring Lil Davinci frames.
The idea is to create a gallery wall, where you can easily sub new pieces in and out, as your kid comes home with more and more masterpieces. What a great idea. I’m totally going to order a set – I just have to decide what sizes to go with.
