Yes, Kari the author of Ucreate.
If Kari from Ucreate, the Oprah of crafting on blogs, was following me, then perhaps I was wrong. Women are ready to build, not just glue, sew and refinish. Perhaps I just had not reached the right audience.
Kari, thank you for supporting me. And once again, thank you for giving a carpenter another chance. I am so proud to be guest blogging for you today.
2 – bags of small clothespins, 24 count each (bought mine at Joanns for $2.49 each)
Glue (I used Elmers)
Paint (I used Valspar Antique White Satin leftover from the bookcases. The fastest method would be to spraypaint)
4 screws or 4 Picture Hanging BracketsTools and Supplies
Paint Brush (if you are not spraypainting)
Drill (If you are not using Picture Hanging Brackets)
Scewdriver (If you are using Picture Hanging Brackets)
The Clip Art Rails measure 8 feet long and 3″ overall high by 2″ overal thick. You can cut the board to any desired length to fit your needs.
1. Remove the springs from the clothespins.
4. Attach the Clip Art Rails to the wall either using the Picture Hanging Brackets or screw through the face of the Clip Art Rails into a stud in your wall (or a drywall anchor). Hang your artwork, photos, or other lightweight objects. For the letters GRACE I simply printed out each letter, cut the paper down to 8″ x 8″ and glued it to a 12×12 scrapbooking paper. The photos are simply black and white prints of favorite photos.Here is the before and after animation. I cannot believe I just shared that photo with the entire world! Amazing what $70 in lumber, paint, and some clothespins can do for a room!Grace can actually play in her room now! And I just checked on her. Gone are the beautiful black and whites, replaced with stick figures with suns in the upper corners that look more like ugly beetles.
I like her artwork better.
