It’s Week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge and this week I am working on creating a art display wall in Miss P’s room.
You can catch up on Week 1 and Week 2 here. If you are new to the $100 Room Challenge, Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry created a month long event where bloggers make over one room in the home for $100 in one months time. You can get a great outline of the challenge HERE.
If one word describes my 5 year old its CREATIVE! She loves to paint, draw, write and do crafts. She is always up to something. As I type this she is making some popsicle stick fish puppets and an ocean background! I decided it would be really nice for her to have a space where she can choose to display her best pieces of work. I also wanted it to be easy for her to change out her masterpieces as she wanted. Oh, and it had to be cheap! I only have $100 dollars!
What you will need:
2 Clipboards ($2.50 for both)
White craft paint (Already had some)
Painters Tape (Already had some)
Paint brushes (Already had them)
Command Strips ($3.97 for 3)
I first taped off a pattern on each clipboard. Nothing fancy as I want the artwork to stand out.
Paint the clipboards with your choice of colour. I did 2 coats to make the white lines pop.
Remove tape and admire!
For placement it need to be somewhere that was easily reachable for her but equally unreachable for her little brother. Oh the joys of being the oldest! We decided on this location just over her night table.
I measured one inch over the chair rail and attached the command hooks so the clipboards hung 2 inches apart. The clipboards just hook and unhook as needed. Now all our artist needs to do is take a board down, clip her work on and hang it back up! All for $6.47
This was the first selection!
I will eventually add something about this area, but currently the budget is maxed!
Don’t forget to have a look at what some of my blogger friends have been working on in the links below! There are some amazing room transformations happening!
Curtain Rod – $11.88
Clipboards – $2.50
Paint and Brushes – $0
Command Hooks – 3.97
I still need to: Hang gallery wall, decorate shelf, fill bookshelf
Plan for week 4: Reveal Week!
