Hanging children’s art

dekaWe are moving home!  The new one is larger and, of course, better decorated. I have made the usual promise to myself (and my husband) to be more organised and to keep it tidier. So I’m on the lookout for smart tricks to help me keep my promise. This clever Ikea hack that I found on Ohdeedoh is one of them.
They used a Deka curtain rod to hang children’s drawings and paintings. It’s very versatile because you can cut the rod to the required length and the clips make it so easy to change and update the display.
I think it will be perfect in the playroom… and it’s so cheap!

That is a fabulous idea! I love Ikea hacking….

I love this idea. I sort of do something similar (and cheaper, actually). I just hang a piece of string on a wall with two nails on either end, and then I use small clothespins to hold the art to the string. It’s cute, and like you said, it’s a fun way to hang their art and change it regularly.

Such a great idea! Love the idea of a rotating art collection on the wall.

That’s not Deka. It’s the Dignitet.


Deka goes from wall to wall and doesn’t bend. The Dignitet costs more but can be mounted on one wall like that with the bend in the posts.
