First EVER Project, Barn Wood Frame

Submitted by dmcarwin on Tue, 12/13/2011 - 14:18

Since I have found Ana's site I have been aching to build something. I built this frame with free scrap wood (that wasn't straight). It was my first time using a miter saw, nail gun, and air compressor! I am happy to say I didn't die and the frame isn't perfect, but I am excited to build more! I modified the frame to be 24 by 24 square and I plan to make another one the same size to hang in my oldest two boys rooms.

Estimated Cost
Free! Scrap wood
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Type of Wood
1x2's Pine? Not really sure.
Finish Used
I use some oops paint I had laying around. I used a foam brush to do two coats, I plan on distressing the edges, just haven't done it yet.
