Hey guys! You may have seen my little sneak peak of this project on Instagram a few days ago!
I purchased 3 – 1×4’s @8ft and 1 – 1×3 @8ft. For each frame, I cut 4 – 1×4’s @17 1/4″ and 2 – 1×3’s @ 14″ (to make certain your 1×3’s fit your frame right, measure the width of all 4 1×4’s together and cut the 1×3’s at that measurement. Wood width varies quite a bit).
If you don’t have a saw, this hand saw is a great starter for a project like this!
and followed up with 1 1/4″ brad nails. I used my Ryobi Airstrike nailer for this but you could also use finishing nails and a hammer. I shot my nails through the front of the frame because we are going for an old, worn look.
Just wipe it on with a foam brush, wait about 5 minutes and then wipe the stain with a clean cloth. Don’t wipe the stain off, just blend it.
Once the stain dried, I sprayed one coat of Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint over the stain.
See! I used my Ryobi Corner Cat sander with an 80-grit sanding pad to sand the white spray paint off. You can go heavy on this or light. I sanded them down pretty good and paid special attention to all of the corners.
That was IT! If you want to hang these on the wall, just use a sawtooth hanger on the back of each frame. I chose to prop mine on my DIY shelves!
