Kids Wall Art

We're doing some room reshuffling around here and ended up with a little playroom for the kids. Here's what I did for some super quick wall art: I painted large canvases with the extra seaside blue wall paint from my son's beach-themed bedroom next door. Then I made high-quality 8x10 glossy prints of some close-up shots of the kids. These prints were simply spray-glued to the canvas centers and the art was displayed in a row.

Love this. How did you do the white borders around the photos? Jen

Jenni - I centered my photos on the page before printing ... so the white border is just the paper. In Photoshop, select "Print With Preview" and size and position your image.

The playroom is where a child’s imagination grows. And the Child Desks where it prospers. Well, I believe in having utility-based Kids Playroom Furniture at home.

How big were the canvases? I have been looking for some inexpensive wall art for our family room. THANKS!
