I live in Ketchikan, Alaska right smack in the middle of a rain forest, so I had been waiting for a sunny day for quite a while so i could get outside and get these built and painted. I got all the wood and about a week later my day came, I got outside and had them built, primed, and painted in less than 3 hours. I painted all my frames the next day and had my husband help my put them up. I have gotten SO many compliments on them and they look so great in our living room, after we put them up, I realized how naked that wall had looked before!

Estimated Cost
30 dollars
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Type of Wood
pine
Finish Used
Used a spray on primer, then finished with 2 coats of semi-gloss white. The frames I spray painted first, but as that didn't cover the black and brown frames enough, I went over that with some of the leftover paint.
