Periodic Table Wall Art Printables



I have some really nifty "before" and "after" shots of the hallway outside my kids' rooms.  As for the before shots, well, let's just say that the area has become a bit neglected lately.


Yeah, I'd say that bookcase could use some organizing and stylizing.


Okay, so the top of the bookcase has a stack of books thrown haphazardly on top.  And a basket of shells from our recent vacation.  And three frames, only one of which has something in it that is not the picture that came with it.  And THAT picture is, yes, a VALENTINE'S printable.  Yikes.  Clearly time for a change.  Oh, and another obvious problem:  the shelves are a mess!

Enter some really cool periodic table wall art printables I found over at Craftiments, a craft and sewing blog I stumbled upon the other day.   Decorating with science stuff has become a cool thing to do these days, and I absolutely fell in love with this idea.  Especially since chickadee numbers one and two will be learning this stuff at school this year.  Check out what Kirstin over at Craftiments used as her inspiration.


That crafty chick went onto Pic Monkey and created her OWN set of 16 elements.  What a great {and crafty} idea.  Check it out.


Wanna know the best part?  She shared the downloads for FREE!

I had to take full advantage of those babies and downloaded a few for myself.  Then I fit them into the frames I already had and voila.

My photos don't do the colors of the printables justice.  They're awesome, very vintage looking and I LOVE THEM!

So at least for the time being the bookcase looks presentable enough.  That is, until the next kid walks by and pulls out some books and drops some of their cr** {rhymes with trap} on top.  I'm not so sure Restoration Hardware has an answer for THAT.

Make sure to visit Kirsten over at Craftiments and download those awesome printables!

Awesome! Thank you for blogging about my printables :) My printer is horrible at reproducing colors, so I send a lot of printables to Walmart's one hour photo and they turn out gorgeous. (the photo dept workers always give me strange looks when I do it LOL)

Those are neat, Kathleen! How nice that someone made some up and shared them for free. Free artwork is always a good thing! : )
