Reclaimed Wood Frames
Every summer we try and get back to Montana, where I grew up, to visit friends and family. Near my parent's house, we ran across this old settlers cabin that was falling down. The wood was really beautiful, so we brought several pieces back to turn into wood frames.
Becuase this wood was over 100 years old, we had to be really careful not to damage it and even more so when we cut it and attached the frame together.
We took our time picking out the pieces we would use for the frame because most of the wood was very twisted and we knew it would be hard for the frame to lie flat on the wall if weren't careful.
Step 1 - Cut the corners at 45 degree angles
Step 2 - Use wood glue on the corners
Step 3 -Attach the small brackets to the back, along with the hanging brackets.
Step 4 - Coat with Polyurathane
I added tin wall shelfs from Magnolia Market with Mason jars and floral.
