Operation Organization Back to School Edition Series at 11 Magnolia Lane

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the fourth day of Operation: Organization {Back to School Edition}.  Today, we’re happy to welcome Julie of Less-Than-Perfect-Life-of-Bliss, who has joined us several times before as a guest blogger.  Her {organized closet storage} is inexpensive and chic (love the gold!), and her {spring open house} is an absolute must-see (seriously!).  Her piano room is my favorite, but her kitchen is a very close second.  Here’s Julie:

Hi, friends!  I’m so honored that the girls here at 11 Magnolia Lane have invited me to be a part of their Back-to-School edition of Operation Organization!  Can it really be time for this already?  School starts tomorrow for our family and like always, we’ve got mixed emotions.

I’m bracing myself for the flood of papers and homework that I know is coming.  There’s no possible way to save every little special work of art that comes home, but I came up with an idea a few years back that works well for us, and I thought you might like it, too!

 

It’s our Kids’ Art Gallery Wall that I put together shortly after we moved into our house so we’d have a place to display our kids’ little masterpieces.


 

I was able to find a score of various types of frames in the Hobby Lobby clearance aisle, and I just used some turquoise craft paint to give them a little charm.

 

Then I added some saw-tooth hangers on the backs of the frames, arranged them in a pattern I liked, and hung them on the wall!  I even used some thin particle board, painted and placed in one of the frames, to make a chalkboard.

 

A basic pinch clip hung on a nail inside the frame is perfect for holding the art.

 

This system has worked so well for us for the past few years.  Anytime my younger girls bring home special projects, I tell them to choose their favorites and hang them on the art wall.  This way we don’t feel bad about not keeping every little paper that comes home, and everyone is happy.

They love seeing their art on display in the house, and we switch it out often to highlight new pieces! And the wall looks cute even if some of the frames are empty.

So, let them be awesome!  But, be organized, too.  Hope your school year gets off to a great start!  If you’d like to see a couple more back-to-school projects, visit the links to my blog below.
