Creating a Frame!

I posted last week about these barn wood frames I found off Etsy for a client wanting to create a gallery wall. They were a natural wood but I sprayed them a light pass of white. They turned out great but the frames did not have any of the hardware's a step by step to finishing a frame!

here is the white washed frame

the finished back

have the correct size glass cut

cut out your picture

(My client had all these old photographs of her family that she wanted to re size in black and white...I went up to Kinko's and copied them to the correct size...I copied all the pictures for under $5)

center the frame bracket

nail in the bracket

place cardboard behind the photo

I used glazier points to hold the glass, picture, and cardboard

(glazier points only cost $2 for about 50)

using a putty knife I pushed the glazier points into the side of the picture frame

hang and enjoy!
