Somewhere over a year ago Neil and I had our hallways painted. We took the pictures off the walls prior to painting, then got lazy on hanging them back up. Finally the blank walls in the hallway between the bedrooms in our house started to get to me and they needed something on them! I have a few special medals that have been framed up: my first two half Iron distance races and my first Ironman.
I’ve been collecting my race medals in a little bag and leaving them on top of my dresser. I knew I wanted to display them somehow, I just wasn’t sure exactly how. I like the fancy metal displays but I thought that might not be big enough. Instead I opted to go with a curtain rod.
Display Race Medals With Curtain Rods
We can easily swap medals out as our collection grows. I love finally having my very first Goofy Challenge medals on the wall right now though:
Along with this year’s Goofy medals too:
And some of the latest from this year:
Display Your Race Bibs
Because some of the bibs we get are so pretty I wanted to show those off too. I picked up the spontan magnetic board from IKEA and hung it on the wall.
I’m loving that our hallway no longer has boring, bare walls. It is also a nice reminder of our accomplishments too!
