DIY Framed Display Shelf – Tutorial
Every year begins with not a New Year’s resolution, but as a new year to redecorate! My family has come to expect that changes will take place after Christmas. I love change… as long as I’m the one making them! haha!
I have a collection of pictures I no longer like. I keep them around for the frames. Not that I alway know what I’m going to do with them, but I just can’t throw them away. This frame came from a picture that I bought eight years ago when I decorated our new house for the first time. Now it is getting a new life.
I have seen windows and frames made into shelves in salvage stores and antique stores and even home good stores. Love them! So here is my take on one.
I created a box from 1 x 6 and attached it to the frame with wood glue. Tape is being used to hold the pieced together while the glue dries. I really need to invest in some clamps! After the glue dried, I turned the frame over and nailed the picture frame to the box frame. Then I glued and nailed pieces of 1 x 6 x 3/8 thick wood for the shelf and dividers.
I primed the shelves and picture frame with a brush. (Spray paint will also work.) This is a project in process. I will post more pictures soon.
