Simple Picture Frame

Submitted by ctgilbert on Sun, 12/31/2017 - 19:09

I used the Barnwood Frame as a base for this project.  Instead of all 1x2's, I used 1x3's for the interior frame and 1x2's for the exterior and stained each with a different shade.  This was my first real try at this project and allowed me to use my own frame, matte, picture from start to finish.  It took me a bit longer than normal due to some silly mistakes and the decision to build a jig for the miters.  Normally, this would cost ~$150 to have someone else do it, but this ended up being ~$30 (wood, double matte, print).
