DIY: curtain rod art wall

May 07, 2012

Children’s art work is one of those things that most families with young children have plenty of.  it is finding creative ways to display, preserve and not get buried under it that can be a challenge. A few years ago I created an art wall in our home to display the projects that my kids would bring home from school.  This art wall has worked perfectly.  I love how easy it is to use, the way it proudly displays their work and the way it looks in our home.  The downside is that our children have now outgrown it.  Meaning, we have more art work than room to display it.  Plus our two youngest kids are soon going to be of an age to start creating their own artwork so this situation is not going to go away anytime soon (thankfully).  So it was time to come up with a second art wall option.  I wanted something that would allow me to change out the art easily and as frequently as I wanted.  I wanted something that would flow well with the look of our home and something that was inexpensive.

Here is what I came up with:

-Take a curtain rod and mount it to the wall.
-Use curtain clips on the rod to suspend the artwork.

The beauty of this plan was that not only was it easy to do but I was able to repurpose an unused curtain rod and clips from my garage!
