How to Make a Distressed Children's Art Display {or purchase at our MOPS Yard Sale in Catonsville, Maryland}

MOPS Yard Sale in Catonsville, Maryland and how to distress wood to create a children's art display!

How to distress wood to create a children's art display!
How I made a children's art display by distressing wood and adding simple clips. These are a great way to showcase your child's art and to keep it off your refrigerator. 

I participate in a MOPS group in Maryland which has been a lot of fun with twice monthly meetings that include childcare for our children during that time. While we each pay a fee for the semester, we try to raise money in other ways to help provide additional funds for craft supplies, babysitting, speakers, etc.

Right now we're hosting a yard sale in Catonsville, Maryland as a fundraiser so come check out our yard sale! I'll have my art displays available for purchase and all proceeds go to our group.

Date: June 13, 2015
Time: 8am-Noon
Rain Date: June 27, 2015
Location: The Church of the Good Shepherd, 736 Edmonson Ave, Catonsville, Maryland

There will be crafts for sale, snacks/drinks, as well as your typical yard sale items. 

Here's a quick tutorial on how to make them yourself. 



If you're a DIY'er and not local, here's what you need to know to make your own. I made eight of these art displays to sell. The wood is distressed. 

Supplies Needed (with affiliate links):
1. Cut your wood to your desired length. Mine were already cut and I used them as is. I did sand them a bit.

2. Paint or distress the wood (see video below- distressing involves painting, sanding, staining, and using a poly coat. It's definitely more time consuming than just paint). Below is a video explaining how I distress furniture- I did the same thing with my art displays.


3. Add your hangers on the back. I found that using a chalk marker on the back to mark where the screw would go worked REALLY well. I'm not sure what else I could have used over the poly and dark paint that would have showed up. 



4. Add your clips on the front. I found mine in the bins upfront at Target, 4 for $1. I used gorilla glue to attach them which worked really well.

These are a turquoise color that I found on the sale rack at
Lowes and they're stained with ebony paint.
Now you're finished. Pretty simple project, although time consuming if you decide to distress the wood. I love having these to hang my children's artwork so we can keep the fridge clear. 

Or you can just save yourself some time and come by our yard sale to pick some up! Make sure you get there early!
