I was recently inspired
about the family art gallery
she made in her hallway
with picture frames and cork-board
to create a rotating art gallery.
not as simple
as it seemed.
I already had the stash of black frames
in my art studio
so I just had to go on the hunt for a roll
of cork-board cork
(I found mine at Michaels Craft Store)
What she did not say in her post,
or maybe she used thicker cork ,
was what a Pain-In-THE-Tush
the cork is to work with!!
The cork was so thin
that it ripped if I looked at it the wrong way.
It wasn't thick enough
to stick push pins in
so I had to replace/add a piece of
foam core to the back of every frame
to make it thick enough to stick a
push-pin into it.
I also had to use spray adhesive
to stick all of the cork down
since it ripples
(she used Mod-Podge).
The finished gallery turned out great but
it was a bit more work
than I thought it would be...
3M Adhesive hooks
At least not on our walls.
We had three pictures fall/clatter down onto the
hardwood floor in the middle of the night -
scared me to death.
Our finished art gallery
next to the kitchen table!
A perfect place to display all of our
doodles, preschool projects,
and artistic masterpieces.
"E"s beautiful still life painting--
Just had to show it off too!
