Mini-Masters in Your Home

Is it just me or is my kid an artistic genius?  I would imagine most parents feel that way when they look at the masterpieces presented to them by their budding prodigy. The folks who put their child's painting in the apartment above probably do, and from the looks of the painting, they just might be right.

Children are very prolific, so there's lots to display.  Here are a few ideas to help you display the art of the talent who owns your heart.


Using a curtain rod and rings to create an ever changing display is a very clever and doable idea found at project nursery.

Covering the walls in durable wall paper (the example above uses seagrass wallpaper as found in Elle Decor) or cork board, allows you or the kids, to hang, rearrange, take down and put back art again and again without worrying about ruining the wall.

If you want to cover every inch, there's a Graham & Brown's wallpaper by artists Taylor & Wood that you can customize with your child's artwork or they can directly draw, paint, etc. right on it.  Very fun.

And as long as we're talking about drawing on the wall, here's a pretty neat idea from artist Maria gil ulldemolins as discovered on Design Sponge.  There's a roll of paper at the top of the frame, so the artist creates right then and there when the inspiration comes and voila–it's framed.  When another creative urge hits, just change the paper for a clean canvas.

I've custom framed a few of my son's creations, but it can be costly.  That's why this LiL'Davinci Art Cabinet is so great. You can easily refresh the frame with your child's latest work and store up to 50 pieces while your at it.

As kids grow so does their skill and their repertoire.  Filling your house with their masterpieces fills your home with joy as big and bright as their proud smiles–and yours.
