DIY Pallet Frame

Happy Friday friends! It has been a long, long week. I am looking forward to moving on into the weekend…

Last week I shared this project at Mom 4 Real and I love it so much I wanted to share it with you guys as well.

A few weeks ago I saw a picture frame at Target that totally inspired this frame.

It was a frame made from “pallet wood” painted white. Very cute, but at 29.99 it was out of my budget so I decided I was going to try  to make a version of my own!

Ever have a project when you get about half way through you just aren’t sure if it’s going to work out or not? Well that’s how this project went for me. There were moments when I wasn’t sure it was going to turn out. Then it did and I was thrilled!

DIY Pallet Frame

I made my DIY pallet frame by using a dollar store picture frame, cut pieces of ply wood, three yard sticks (cut into pieces), and wood glue.

DIY Pallet Picture Frame

I glued four pieces of plywood to frame out the dollar store picture frame. Then I painted the whole thing white. After the paint had dried I started cutting pieces of yard stick to fit around the parameter of the picture frame. That was when I wasn’t sure my vision was going to turn out :) I didn’t create a pattern before cutting the yard stick pieces. Huge DIY FAIL. It was a big headache to get the pieces to fit just so. I finally worked it out and I was so glad that I didn’t give up.

After gluing all the yard stick pieces into place I painted them gray then, I distressed the whole thing. I love how you can see the ticks from the yard sticks after distressing.

It has a rustic look that I adore.

I’m using it in my Spring Vignette but it’s eventual home will be in the master bedroom that’s getting a face lift!

Speaking of master bedroom face lift be sure to check out my master bedroom inspiration board on Pinterest.

Have a great weekend.
