The Playroom: New Picture Ledge & Artwork

September 25, 2012 — 2 Comments

Artwork for the Playroom, sitting on Ribba Picture Ledge from Ikea, $14.99

The playroom is still a mess but I did manage to install 2 picture ledges from Ikea. Then I was able to put up a lot of the artwork that had been sitting around for longer than I would care to admit. I also picked up a couple of new white frames at Target. I was getting pretty frustrated finding white frames. I had bought some from Michael’s before but they don’t seem to sell plain white frames anymore.  Plus the 2 prints that I had from Petit Collage were already matted so I needed an 11×14 frame so Ikea was out. Finally I went back to look at Target again and they had just what I needed. Oh how I love you Target!

Below these ledges I am going to hang hooks for all of the kids dress up clothes (which are quite substantial and well used). I think I have settled on these Multiplayer Wall Hooks from Land of Nod. I was hoping to find something a little cheaper, but I did a quick search and didn’t come up with much (even if I painted them). The added bonus is that they aren’t pointy, so it should minimize injury (at least I can hope). It won’t be as nice as Chloe’s DIY costume closet (which I adore), but I think it will be well used.

What you can’t see is my old college shelf below stacked high with kids artwork. I have been meaning to photograph these for about a year. Now I really need to get on that! Then I can just keep a few and move the shelf out of the way.

I hope everyone is having a good week! We are having some beautiful fall weather. So nice and crisp!

  1. Looking good! I’ve had my Ikea picture ledges leaning against the wall, waiting to be hung up, for a good 3 weeks now. You’re inspiring me to get on that! Love your house, btw!

    • Hi Gretchen (and welcome)!

      My picture ledges were sitting on the chair in the playroom for almost a month before I hung them! I also have a second Expedit that needs to be put together and installed on top of the one I have already put in. Currently the kids are using the box as a long play table. At least they don’t mind the clutter!
