5 Ideas For a Kids Art Gallery Wall (Our Home)

5 Kids Art Gallery Walls

I’ve always loved my kid’s artwork. From their early day scribbles to their present-day masterpieces, each piece gives me a glimpse into their magical little minds and I love what I see.

Well, I don’t love what I see ALL the time as many pieces include Henry Bacon our dog. He has a rather obvious spot on his rear end which is somewhat ‘lost in translation’ when it comes to placement in a drawing – if you know what I’m sayin’…

Oh sure, the drawing looks innocent at first, but if you don’t know that Henry has a polka dot on his rear end, it just looks downright rude – but always makes me laugh!

In our last home, I created an art gallery wall in our dining room area.

While the painted church pew was short-lived, the art gallery lived on for many years – in many different forms!

In our next home (which is now two homes ago…) wall space was at a premium in the dining area so I moved the gallery down to the family room where we spent most of our time anyways!

It started out on the long wall above our bookcase…

And then moved it to the first wall you see when you looking into the family room.

There aren’t as many pieces as when it was on the big wall, but I get just as much satisfaction, if not more because it’s been narrowed down to my faves.

And of course, because I just love hammerin’ holes in the wall – I tried a mini-gallery upstairs! This replaced the downstairs one when we tore that wall down for my NEW OFFICE (seriously, it’s like a revolving door of furniture, frames and walls around here).

And lastly, it’s been a few YEARS since I’ve touched this blog post, but I wanted to share MIXTILES with you in our new (two homes later) home! We’ve also progressed from kid’s artwork to FAMILY photos and I love it just as much, although I do miss their little scribblings.

      Thanks Andrea, I actually had a local guy make it out of 2×8 boards and then I painted and distressed it! It was the only way I could get that size 😉
