It’s almost back to school time and your young creatives will soon be proudly bringing home their daily works of art. Probably lots and lots of works of art!!!
But instead of them just piling up on the kitchen table or cluttering the fridge door, how about some clever and unique ways to display them with pride.
In Mondays post I spoke about displaying your artwork by propping it against a wall and saving your walls from holes. So today I thought I might mix it up a bit and discuss drilling several holes all over them!
An interesting way to hang your artwork is well…. NOT to hang your artwork!
If done correctly simply placing an item strategically in a space can give a casual sophistication to a design scheme You can change the layout on a whim and of course you have the added advantage of not having holes all over your walls.
Instead of giving the usual gift of socks, jewellery or wine this year, why not go for something truly original.
Something personal, something which will stand the test of time………
Something which shows you know and care about what and who you’re buying for!
When it comes to choosing which photo’s to display, I can be the most indecisive person on the planet. An arrangement I may like on Monday could be totally out of favour with me by Friday! Enter Picture Ledges. They give me the freedom to change and rearrange them as often as I like without having to punch more holes in my walls.
