DIY Picture Frame and Kitchen Nook Update

Happy first day of February!

Hopefully, you have recovered from the Holidays. If not, I feel you! Unfortunately, I am playing catch-up. I had an unexpected family emergency in December, which caused me to abandon my routine. Hopefully, I will be back on track within the next few weeks.

Anywho, I wanted to pop in and share my DIY picture frame. Plus, update you on my kitchen nook progress. The plan was to complete the project in a few weeks but, that didn’t happen. However…

Moodboard/Inspiration Pic

I’ve made a change to the Kitchen Nook Inspiration board. As you may know, I liked the Blue Heron Canvas Wall Art from Amazon. I had almost convinced myself to purchase it. When I remembered, I had a pic of a blue heron. I took the picture while at the Circle B Ranch Wildlife Preserve.

A coat of polyacrylic was applied to the frame to add luster.

I plan to use this pic in the makeover. The above picture is not as sharp as it could be because I snapped it with my iPhone. Hopefully, I will do a better job on reveal day. My photography is a work in progress. I love the photograph and my DIY picture frame for several reasons. I think the words recycle, reduce, and reuse sum up my reasons nicely.

So, let’s talk about the frame, shall we? We constructed the picture frame from a dilapidated privacy fence. We also built storage boxes and decorative shelving with the remainder of the wood.

The frame was super simple to create. Once we decided on the size of the print, we cut the wood accordingly. We purchased wood glue and four metal do-dads to connect/attach the pieces of wood.

We also purchased a 24 x 36 sheet of plexiglass from the Home Depot. Hopefully. it will keep the image in pristine condition.

I got into a fight with the Hercules hook. It ripped the paper in several places. Good news, I won!

This pic gives a general idea of how the frame was constructed, and a look at the other items that were used to hang the print.

So, what do you think of my DIY picture frame? I love it!

My darlings, stay safe and enjoy your week!

Chat soon,
