This is a project I have been waiting to do for awhile. I saw these in a store for an outrageous price and figured I could make something along the same line for much cheaper.
For the base I used some kind of wood paneling- not sure exactly what it is, but it worked. My Dad helped me cut it down to the size I was wanting and then I glued the pieces together. Spray paint and glaze make it pop!
I used a piece of scrap wood and cut it a little bigger than the 4X6 picture and glued that onto the base. I like how much thicker it is than the base, it adds some texture or something.
To secure the picture, my dad gave me these little bracket things and some tiny screws. I cut out a 4x6 piece of plastic and covered the picture with it, used the brackets to hold that in place and slipped the picture behind it.
This is the one I made for my mom for Christmas. If she ever wants to replace the pictures, she can just unscrew the brackets and put in a new picture.
I also got to use my fun new labels for the first time! They say "Imperfectly done with Love by Kindall." So professional, I know
I've made a couple others of these in different sizes and colors. Hopefully I will post more pictures soon and take some more pictures of the process so directions can be a little clearer!
