My mother in law was so good about keeping special momentos from my husband's youth. I gladly inherited at least 50 baseballs. Each baseball represents a homerun he hit. I displayed them for a while in a large glass jug, but it truly didn't do them justice so I came up with this display.
The top pegboard still needs to be drilled in completely so it sits nicely against the wall. This little project was so easy and it is so fun to walk by them and read the stats on each one.
1. Buy 2 pieces of pegboard
2. Paint the rough side so the paint adheres.
3. Purchase these hooks
This is another simple, cheap project in his room. I'm always looking for interesting ways to display photographs so I grabbed 6 old clipboards from my husband's desk, some scrapbook paper and Mod podged it onto the clipboard. After they dried completely I slipped in the photographs (5x7's)
AND this room with THIS wall is my next project. We've just purchased a shiny new piano and it was a great motivator to fix up the spare room/office/piano room. I always get asked what paint color I used on this wall and I'll gladly share it as I searced a looooong time for the right red....not too bright and not too orange. It's Sherwin Williams' Roycroft Copper Red.
