I chose this wood because of the separate notices to show off her artwork better.
This is a closer view of the wood I used.
These are the clips I painted to match.
This is me adding the first peg to see how it looked.
This is the final image after all hooks have been placed and artwork added.
I will admit it is not the most gorgeous thing in the world but it does serve it's purpose well. I have one more piece of board about the same size that I am thinking of adding below this one but just not sire yet. This was a quick fix but I would rather have the cables from Ikea if anyone wants to mail me some through Paypal! :) You can;t tell it in the pictures but the board was slightly warped. I tried using my all time favorite command strips which hangs everything in my house at this point but it wouldn't hold. So I had to get creative and use the lids from soda cans glued to the back of the board to hold the nails I used in the end.
So far it looks good, mainly because it's my baby girls artwork, but my Cricut machine is screaming at me to put some sort of quote or phrase above them, That's if I don;t get me those Ikea brackets first-HELP!
