{Tutorial} Massive Black & White Frame Picture

Massive Black and White Framed Picture for just a few dollars

I am so excited that I finally have my Master Bedroom coming together. Back in June we started this framed picture project, and had to put it on hold when we found out we were moving.

So all the cutting and staining of the frame was done at the old house, and I also got my AWESOME 24×36 picture printed while we were still there. You can order yours too from Staples. Here’s a direct link to Staples Engineering Prints. They are kinda blurry up close, but they look so dang awesome from far away, and you can’t beat that price. You could even get a 36×48 print for just over $7!!

Once we got to the new house, I couldn’t wait any longer, I had to put it together. So one night after putting the kids to bed, I laid it all out on the floor and the hubby and I got to work. Oops, the only thing is, we didn’t have screws that were short enough. The ones that came with the L brackets were too long, and would poke thru the front of the frame. So we had to cut off the tip of the screw before using it, then pre drill our holes (since the pointy end of the screw was now gone!). So word to the wise, make sure that you have screws SHORTER than the depth of your frame!!

Ok, so once we had the frame all put together (you can see our step by step instructions from my “I love you to the moon and back” post), we just used duct tape to put the picture on the back. Make sure to pull it taut from one side to the other to prevent wrinkling.

We put it above our master bed, because well, it’s us!! Kinda makes sense right?!

And the stain on the frame was kinda a spur of the moment decision, but I am total in love with it. Like DYING over how it looks. So I’m thinking that all of my furniture needs to be stripped and stained to match. Thoughts?
