artist angles

The bulldog clip post in wall works from May 16th  (http://edit423.com/2011/05/16/bulldog-clip-art-display/) wins the clicks count.  So, check out the new picture angles below + ideas for where to place art displays in your home.  The fridge is begging for mercy.  Before (yaaaawn…):

After: 

The wall space is in a landing area – a few steps down, square landing, then turn right for the remaining flight.  The pictures above are taken from the main floor, a person faces the display as they’re coming up the stairs from the basement.  The area is approximately 5 1/2 ‘ x 9 1/2’ – what an excellent use of dead vertical space!  (if I do say so myself…)

Other art display location ideas:

  • behind doors in kids’ rooms
  • garage walls
  • laundry room walls
  • transition areas, similar to example above
  • any blank wall – but don’t go crazy…keep some walls empty for the zen effect

bulldog clip art display

Kids’ artwork is amazing.  We now have a special spot for hanging the masterpieces.   Putting up and taking down art is a cinch, plus it has a modern, timeless look.   

 Directions:

  1. cut and paint boards of your choice (shown:  glossy cream on primed .5″ thick, 1.5″ tall wood (found at Home Depot))
  2. nail the boards to the wall into studs, sink the nails, fill the holes and touch up with paint
  3. screw bulldog clips into the boards (hint:  use blue tape to figure out where to place the clips prior to drilling holes)
