I wanted two 6’ rails. We bought two 1x3x6 and one 1x2x6 pine boards for EACH rail. We chose a Minwax Stain and Polyurethane combo in a color to coordinate with the rest of our woodwork, but they would be nice painted too.
Great to display photos and artwork and change it out as often as you like!
I ran a thin line of wood glue along the board before nailing them together. Probably not necessary but it doesn’t hurt either!
Even though the boards were precut to 6’ we wanted nice, clean cuts on the ends so we used a square and trimmed the ends off.
We used these drywall hangers and screws to mount the rail to the wall.
We used a level and tape to make sure the rails were evenly spaced and nice and level.
All done and we love them!
