My "New" Wall

After seeing this idea at The Scrapbook Zone to use curtain rods & clip rings to hang layouts, I've been wanting to do this in my own home for quite a while now & finally did. And I LOVE the end result! Except now I need to paint the wall :) The stairway walls (which is where I hung these at) are about the only walls in our home that are still white, with the exception of Cassie's room because you can't see her walls anyway with all the posters on them! But what color would make these layouts pop more? Any ideas?

Right now, I'm displaying some of my absolute favorite layouts on the rods, but I'll be changing them out every so often, maybe even with the seasons or something. I turned the page protectors so that the side is at the top & the slot is on the side (hope that makes sense) plus I trimmed the holes off of the protectors where they would go into albums..... this way, it should keep dust out of them.

I even altered some wood letters for the word Create using the older Junkitz black & white papers, pink, black & white ribbons, pink Primas & rhinestones & some old metal charms I've had in my stash forever.
Just a quick post because I have a lot to do around the house today since I'm off work.


Have a Happy Hump Day,
Benita

Wow, what a great wall! Love it!!! Wish I had wall space to do that; I just frame up my favorite page and stand it up on a shelf....it is so nice to see it out instead of in a book!

that looks fantastic!! Well done - now can you come over and do mine?? ;0)

This would also be a great idea for displays when I do expos!!.. stealing this idea for sure!

This is wonderful. Love the idea! I'm not really sure what color would work as the wall color due to all the different colors you have displayed. At first Yellow jumped out at me, but as I looked it might not be the best color for that. good luck deciding, let us know what color you decide on. Can't wait to see it.

Looks GREAT Benita! You are so talented!! I think just about any color would make the layouts pop - it really depends on the rest of your house & what would go with your decor. I'm sure you'll come up with something FABULOUS! :-)
