Alternatives to the fridge display
Forgotten what your fridge looks like under dusty layers of your child’s paintings and drawings? One way to cut through the clutter is to rotate art — in with the new, out with the old. In theory, nothing could be easier than using good old-fashioned fridge magnets. But in real life (or at least mine), that doesn’t actually happen. The resulting accumulation looks messy rather than giving a budding Picasso’s masterpieces the proud placement they deserve.
In search of an alternative, I discovered clips (avilable in office supply shops as well as hardware outlets). A gallery of clips makes it easy to swap art in and out, so new and special pieces get their moment in the spotlight. Plus, you can locate a gallery in any room, wherever you have wall space. Here are some more perks of using clips, along with inspiring strategies for displaying your little one’s latest and greatest.
