I wanted to make some for Christmas presents, but I didn’t have a piece of 2x8 lumber… so what’s a girl to do?
I did have some of these left-over pieces of beadboard though…. hmmm….
So, I made some easy photo display gifts (a la Shanty2Chic) with my own twist… beadboard!
The beadboard gets an aged look with some Ralph Lauren Glaze in Smoke applied thinly with a brush.
I sawed a small piece of scrap 1x4 at a shallow angle (just eyeballed it) for holding the beadboard… and nailed in on the bottom.
I hammered some upholstery nails on the bottom to hide the ugly nails ;)
Hot glued a scrap piece of cap molding (spray painted Heirloom White) along the top,
hot glued a mini clothespin on the top,
covered the base with scrap paper.
It was pretty quick and definitely painless… until I have to give it away.
Maybe I’ll make one to keep!
That’s my precious baby up there… I really love this photo display!!!
Finally, here’s a sneak peak of an Ikea furniture transformation I’m working on.
Can’t wait to show you!
