I love how they turned out!
First, we removed the glass and lightly sanded the frame. Using the miter saw, we started in the corner, cutting it at a 45. Put a little wood glue on the back and placed. Then we repeated, using straight cuts for the center.
and clamped in place until the glue set.
and that's it!
I decided to leave the inside edge of the frame black to contrast the white mat, but a fun pop of color would look great too!
Using an existing frame made a great foundation so that the frame was sturdy.
Don't want to mill your own driftwood? Why not?? Just kidding :) a large quantity, is A LOT of work!
Try using thin hobby board from Home Depot. Poplar has a variety of wood grain, so it could give a similar effect.
Or stop by Target and check out the Threshold wooden frame, love the variety of wood!
I love our new custom frames! We have a few more to make that we'll be selling, if you're interested, check back in a little.
and a few project updates:
I have one more driftwood project to share - we are officially out of driftwood, so this is it, no more milling our own wood, David thanks me :)
Dyeing the Eames chair is also almost done - it was a little more complex than anticipated (it always is, right?) Fingers crossed that it turns out! Look for a post with my process soon!
Finally, my posting has been a little off schedule since we're taking care of moving stuff, but hopefully I'll be back to normal in the next month or so. Thanks SO much for sticking with me! :) You're the best!
