I will say that this is NOT the professional way to do this. I will share with you what I did and what I wish I changed.
Are you ready?
Ok first go to Hobby Lobby when they have the half price off of their picture frames.
I got 8x10 frames, now I kind off wish I went with the 11x14.
Don't hang them on your wall unless you want some extra motivation to quickly change those dinky skinny frames into nice big chunky ones.
And don't leave your hammer one your steps...trust me it will keep you from having a near panic attack.
Then go and buy some boards. I went with 1x8 boards.
Now I only have a 10" miter saw...apparently 8" boards are too big for a 10" miter saw.
Now you see how clueless I am. Are you sure you wanna hear the rest of what I have to say?
So I got my circular saw out, and made a mess.
Then I recruited some little helpers to paint.
I painted it my fav Halycon Green. The can is almost out so I will move on to another color.
Ok stop cheering.
Now this is where I would say do what I say and NOT what I did.
Once all the paint is dry, turn the boards over and glue them with wood glue.
After you put the glue on and before it dries get out your staple gun and staple it together from the back.
It still won't be perfect. But no worries.
Once the glue dries carefully flip the frame back over and get your caulk gun out.
Then I used my little caulk wand...atleast that is what I call it. To remove the excess caulk.
Once that dries paint over the caulk, then I went on and glazed the frame too.
Then next part is attaching the Hobby Lobby frame to the frame you have just made.
At first I wanted to nail it to together, but Mr. Genius thought that since the Hobby Lobby frame was thin that it would crack. So I went the super glue route.
I got my Gorilla Super glue and put a thin line around the edge of the inside of the frame.
Then place your Hobby Lobby frame on top and do NOT be impatient and pick it up too soon.
I had to super glue three times on one frame.
Once they are dry and ready to be hung up then go for it!
Now enjoy your frames!
