DIY Acrylic Frames
If you are looking for a custom way to frame your pictures or artwork to make it stand out from the wall, these DIY acrylic frames are the perfect thing.
Look at how hideous this bathroom was... I can't believe I left it like this for so long! 4 years! But man oh man, after the $100 room challenge powder bathroom makeover and then phase 2 of this bathroom makeover, I can proudly say, this fits my style way more.
So how did I create the 3D art wall? Well, let me show ya!
This will make sure when you are drilling that you don't crack the acrylic - it is delicate material.
I did an inch in from either side.
Before drilling, be sure to pick the size hole you want and the appropriate drill bit.
When you go to drill, make sure to go slow and steady to keep from breaking the acrylic. You will start to see the plastic curl coming out to make your hole.
Remember, slow and steady.
Before going to mark your holes on the wall, be sure to make your frame level to avoid any extra drilling.
My secret tip for you is that we only screwed the standoffs in on the top of each frame once realized after this first row how many holes we were going to put in the wall otherwise.
To make sure the frame didn't move, on the bottom standoffs, we put a glue dot on the back to secure it.
This project made a world of difference and I'm still fascinated by how just a few bucks and some elbow grease can really change an entire room! Check out more projects on our website. The link to the full post is listed below. Happy DIYing!

No spiderwebs, but it’s in the bathroom and it’s easy to run a dusting wand back there. I’ll have to keep that in mind for the dots! Thanks for sharing!!

If you buy a large piece can you cut the acrylic?
What length are the standoffs?
Can the standoffs be unscrewed and rescrewed if you decide to replace the art later or are they permanently attached?
