This small wall isn't an eyesore, but it's just kind of "there". It's between the bedrooms of Kimba's sons and she decided to make it not just a place to display their art, but a space for creating art too. Check it out:

It's nothing terribly tricky or time-consuming, but what an impact!

Kimba painted thrifted and craft store frames to provide visual cohesion and filled them with her boys' artwork. As she says, "Everything on that wall means love to me." Kimba painted the lower half with chalkboard paint and now her sons can draw on the walls (well, that wall anyway) whenever inspiration strikes.

This wall project is not just an aesthetic addition, but is a lovely example of making a home really yours and making each member feel loved and honored.

See more photos of Kimba's wall on her blog, A Soft Place to Land, and be sure to check out her post with tips for creating a gallery wall.

Who says parenting is thankless?
