Interactive Chalkboard Gallery Wall

Erin Spain

My boys absolutely love art, and I am always finding their drawings scattered all over the house. I decided to create a place where they could create their own art gallery, but it could be easily interchangeable and customizable (and allow for fewer pages scattered all over the place). I did this by creating an interactive chalkboard gallery wall, complete with colorful frames which they can create masterpieces inside of, for a true “gallery” look. They love being able to draw and create, and they now have a place where their art is featured at all times.
