I usually find ugly frames at thrift stores to make over, but this time I made my own frame! It is now holding my decorating inspiration on top of my craft area:
I will be honest…it was hard! It was a true DIY project from start to finish.
The reason I made a frame was because I had sheet metal leftover from this magnetic memo board:
I then measured the moulding, set it up in a miter box so I could cut it on a 45 degree angle. Then I sawed, and sawed, and sawed until my arms were about to fall off. UGH it was NOT easy!!
As you see, there were gaps at the corners. I used Liquid Nails to adhere the pieces together. I also put staples in each corner (on the back) just to be safe.
I put wood filler in the corners where there were gaps, and then sanded it down
Then I did a light coat of primer and sprayed the whole frame with white semi-gloss spray paint.
Then, I took my leftover piece of sheet metal and covered it in this fabric (after I ironed it)
Here’s the view from my “crafting desk”:
