Displaying child's art can be challenging, especially if you are like me and you don't like clutter or mess or for strangers (only family...lol) to know that your children DO make messes....and they sure do love to leave it all for mom to clean up or hang up. So instead of throwing their art away or stashing the really nice ones in a folder in my file cabinet I decided to hang them up. Since moving across the U.S and into a decent sized home I decided that the kids domain will be upstairs and since they love to play on the stairs I thought it would be awesome to create a corner gallery to display some of their work along with some of mine. I call this a transition in decor, it is not exactly located downstairs in the "Adult space" or exactly upstairs in the "Kid space".  Although my home is not fully decorated and only 70% furnished my children's creativity does inspire me to decorate my home in such a way that I think will bring out their personality as well as my own. I also plan to add a small "pin-able/magnetic" art gallery upstairs where they can switch out their art or craft projects.

  1. Sharing children's work in this way is a must. Why wouldn't you want everyone to see it? It's art. They learn about expressing themselves and so many other lessons as well.
