"home" Wall Hanging, DIY
Welcome to my new blog! This is where I will post select projects to showcase some of the fun things you can do with furniture and home decor.
Today's post will feature a Home sign I made from an empty frame, some barn board, and a decor sign I took from my house.
I started with a basic picture frame that I had been working on and after a while I had the idea to spray paint it black. I chose spray paint because I wanted a glossy sheen to the frame.
Next, I had someone take some old barn boards , screwed them together with some wood cut-offs for backing, and nailed it into the frame.
I set the nails in the frame and bent them to keep the boards in place. When someone purchases the piece, they may decide to change the sign, but use the same frame. With the nails as they are, the backing can easily be removed without damaging the frame.
With the barn boards backing the frame, I took off the "home" sign's hangers so that it would be flush to the boards when I glued it on.
Before I attempted to glue it, I made sure that I knew where to place the sign within the frame, so that it was as centred as I could make it. I did this with painter's tape after making my measurements and seeing where it sat. Centring something isn't always about whether the piece is centred within the frame. If that was done for this piece, then the "home" would sit much lower and would look less centred than where I have it here, in this picture.
Being very careful not to add too much, I apply Titebond glue and set it on the boards to adhere.
