Hey there! I was lucky enough to score a great pallet out of my hubby’s truck this weekend! Whoop! I could’t let all of that wood go to waste and I have been wanting to frame a cute quote that I recently saw so…. BAM! I came up with this cutie!
It just makes me giddy! Here’s how you can make yours nearly for FREE!
I used my Ryobi 18-Volt Lithium circular saw to cut the sides of the frame…
and to cut the boards. The sides of the frame (the 2x’s of the pallet) should be 10 inches each and then cut 5 boards down to 10 3/4 inches. ***notice the shape of the “frame sides”. I made sure to get part of the curves when I measured my cuts.
Assembly! I used Gorilla Glue Wood Glue to attach each joint…
and followed up with my Ryobi 18-Volt lithium brad nailer. This bad boy rocks!
Just attach two boards to the top and bottom of the 2x’s.
Before staining, I gave the entire frame a good sanding with my Ryobi Corner Cat. I usually skip this step but I really wanted to get the muck off of the pallet wood…and it helps the stain absorb!
I picked Rust-Oleum Early American to finish this cutie! Just one coat with a foam brush and let it sit for about 5-mintues. Then, wipe it down with a clean cloth
I wanted a more distressed look so I used my Ryobi Corner Cat, again, to sand all of the corners and edges!
That’s it! This frame will fit an 8×10 photo or any printable! It’s so versatile:)
