 I have a nice sized wall in my dining room that really needed something. My home is decorated in an industrial farmhouse Style. After a lot of thought I decided to create my own farmhouse wall décor, using a picture I took of my husband’s grandparent’s farm, a pallet picture frame that I had from a previous project, and some mod podge.

Using the foam sponge brush I painted two coats of mod podge over the front side of the enlargement letting each coat dry overnight. This is right after the second coat was applied.

This is a 1/4" piece of plywood that I had left over from a previous project.
I decided that I needed a back for the enlargement to make it a little stronger in order to attach it to the pallet frame backing.

Next I using mod podge to attach the enlargement to a thin piece of plywood.

After smoothing the enlargement out I mod podged around the edges to make sure it had a good seal to stay glued down.

After seeing the farmhouse picture on the pallet picture frame I noticed that the edges of my plywood were showing a little bit and thought it needed a little something to dress it up!

I centered the farmhouse picture onto my pallet picture frame, then using my air stapler I stapled the farmhouse picture to the Pallet picture frame.

To cover up the plywood edges that were showing on the farmhouse picture I decided to use thin trim boards to create a frame. Here I am measure the trim boards then cut them using my pull saw.

I attached it to wall studs using sheet rock screws in the corners. It is very heaving! When looking at it from a certain angle it looks like a painting on canvas. The mod podge created a textured look and feel!

I couldn't be happier with the end result and love that I was able to incorporate our family into my farmhouse decorating style
