If you have young kids, you know that every day they bring home artistic masterpieces they made at school. Up the artwork goes on the fridge to be proudly displayed until the next day when it gets replaced by a new masterpiece. Of course, you’ll end up tossing some and holding on to others because they’re too precious to get rid of. Instead of keeping the best pieces in folders or on top of a dresser, make the most of your kids' pictures by framing them. Buy some affordable frames like we did here, fitted with a plexi-glass, which makes it safe to hang in kids' rooms and also make it easy to rotate the art. Or, have your favourite pieces professionally framed — you'll be spending more money on the frame than on the art, but for truly special pieces it's worth it! Either way, hang the frames throughout your house so you can enjoy them. Your kids will love you for it!

While watching design TV shows, have you ever noticed that they rarely show you how to hang things up? All you see are people hanging art up, the hooks are already in place. Why is that? Well, it’s simple, it’s because hanging stuff is HARD. It means putting holes in walls and we all know how scary that can be. It’s scary because you don’t want to miss your shot and end up with a bunch of mistake holes that you’ll have to cover up. Arghhhhh…I
