The Li’l DaVinci art cabinet is a great way of alternating their artwork while providing a smart design element in your home. The frames have a hinged glass front door, allowing you to change the pages easily without even having to take the frame off the wall.  There is also a spring-loaded mechanism which can hold up 50 sheets so it’s a great way to archive your child’s artwork.  Image from Emerald Interior Design
