Barnwood Frame

My second project with my new miter saw. I plan to make 3 altogether but so far this is the only one done due to having a one and a half year old under foot.

I used Ana's Barnwood frame plan as a guide. I didn't have enough 1x2 to make the edges and the innner frame so the edges are made of lathe.

12x12 scrapbook paper fits inside this frame prefectly (didn't purposely make it that way but it works) I cut down a piece of foamboard to hold everything in the back. Then I found a quote a liked on Pintrest and printed it out and used thumbtacks to hold it to the foamboard.

Estimated Cost
Free (I used scraps, probably a couple of dollars worth of wood if I had bought it)
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Type of Wood
pine scrap wood
Finish Used
I tried to do the iron acetate finish with vinegar and steel wool but the lathe turned a completely different color than the 1x2 and it just looked weird. So I decided to water down some Glidden interior paint in French Grey and paint over it. I just kept going over it until I liked the finish.
