using-a-kreg-jig

There are a billion different ways to create a place for kid’s art.  One of the billion ways that was overwhelming me was our kitchen refrigerator.  No joke, gives my husband and I at least 10 little gifts a day.  Sometimes it is a bite of her treat and most oftentimes, it is a piece she drew or painted.  While I want to encourage her artistic ability, my refrigerator was starting to look like an advertising bulletin board.  So I decided to make a blank wall in their playroom a magnetic wall to display art.
