Then I remembered I had some Chalkboard Paint left over from another project – perfect! The black is exactly the right contrast to help the artworks pop against the wall, and I love that the kids can draw pictures there or I can leave them a fun little note if there’s ever a blank frame without an artwork to fill it. (Like that will ever happen, right? But in theory – what a fun idea!)
To attach the pegs in the right places, I used a super-scientific method: I put the pegs and paper in the position I wanted them on the frame, then flipped them over and added a line of clear craft glue to the back of each peg…
The glue on the pegs dried fast and held firm. Even with all the squeezing open and shut to attach new artworks every couple of days, there’s been no sign of them budging.
This is such a cool idea!
