Storing Kids Artwork –Cute Kitchen Nook

February 6, 2013 by 15 Comments

It must be sister week on the blog!?  Yesterday, I told you about a huge closet organization project I worked on with my older sister.  I’m the second oldest.  And today I’m sharing a fun house accessory for moms with kids that my younger sister loves!  (I love it, too).  And of course, most of you know that my baby sister totally rocks and you’ve so sweetly offered to keep her precious family in your prayers – updates here.

Growing up in a family with three sisters was a lot of fun.  From an early age, our favorite past time was rearranging furniture, throughout the house.  I’m telling you where there’s a will, there’s a way…we moved some beastly furniture up and down the stairs! Total craziness at age ten!  Fast forward some years and when we get together it’s more of the same, but we do a lot more talking about design concepts and a little less actual rearranging.

The art above the crazy cool Ballard Design table was created by my three darling little nephews!  (Yes, nephews.  In preschool, the girls grabbed boy sketches and the boys went for the girls).  Obviously, fine detail like hair length doesn’t matter much to a three year old…painting trumps everything.  I love the profile sketch idea.  Perfect craft for lots of occasions.

And the way the artwork is stored is crazy cool!  How fun to be able to keep up to 50 art projects in one frame…and totally genius to be able to switch the display depending on season or the latest masterpiece!  I love this solution for Storing Kids Artwork!.

In case you’re in the market for something like this, my younger sister said it came from Dynamic Frames  ( I’m not an affiliate, just like the product LOTS!  What I would like to do is try and talk Stud into making a similar piece for my house!  So cool!

On one side there’s a hinge and the other is a closure clasp.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that AC Moore sells a version of this with a magnetic closure. I have it in my dining area and rotate seasonal art. Just another idea…..

  6. I have frames that hinge like that to display my kids’ art too. Found them at target, on an end cap a while ago.

    This post also shows me that I need my sister to let me do projects at her house. I’ve clearly been missing an opportunity:)

      That is too funny Becca! I don’t run into many that grew up with three sisters!!! April (this is her house) is a designer and artist …I’ll have to do a house tour eventually…she has very fun style!

      XO, Aimee
