1. Affordable: I wasn't about to spend over $100 on a fancy name brand art wall system.
2. Sophisticated: Meaning not childish and banished to the playroom. I wanted to showcase my daughter's art in the center of my home for all eyes to see and didn't want it to feel out of place.
3. Interchangeable: I wanted it to be easy to rotate artwork as it came home from school.
4. Impressionable: Make a statement. An art wall can be a complete focal wall whether it is made by Van Gogh or Joey Reese Gatto. (I prefer the latter)
This is what I came up with...steal it...do it....love it!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this 36" x 48" Natural Cork Board at the Container Store. It is the perfect size and only $39.99, very affordable for a large wood framed bulletin board. It comes with the mounting hardware as well. I than spray painted it white using Krylon Flat White Indoor/Outdoor Spray Paint. The spray was only $4.19 and works perfectly on wood and cork. I painted it white,because my walls are white and I wanted the board to blend in and let the art speak for itself. I spent about $50 total, tax included.
Here is the finished product. Isn't it glorious? Now get to it, your kids smile will be well worth it.
