Earlier this summer, I was dealing with such a headache: the kids' art projects. You know what I'm talking about, I'm sure... they bring home all this lovely art and you can't bear to just throw it out. I mean, if they see you throwing those projects out after they worked so hard on them, it would just break their little hearts. I cannot bear the heartache.
I've gotten better about picking and choosing what needs to stay and what can go. I'm still a bit shaky about throwing their things out, but I know I can't keep it all. But the bigger dilemma for me was what to do with the stuff I had to keep. I mean, if I'm keeping it, I should be able to enjoy it, right? They did make it for me, after all. Or they didn't. Whatever.
Enter the floating shelves!
By the by, did you know that floating shelves are sort of expensive? For cripes sake, I'm hanging construction paper artwork, not the Mona Lisa... paying $300 for some floating shelves, PLUS SHIPPING, would have been ridiculous.
I found these floating shelves on Wayfair.com. They were around $50 for both of them, and after a 10% coupon code that I found online they were $49 and some change... and would your believe that any order over $49 has free shipping? MEANT. TO. BE.
And now, the artwork hangs nicely for all the world to see.
We're accumulating quite the clay animal collection. It's like a zoo up in here.
So tell me, do you have any trepidation about throwing out your kids artwork?
**I was not compensated for this post. Wayfair.com was honestly the best price for these floating shelves. If Wayfair wants to sponsor me, they should totally contact my people.
I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
