With Summer officially only a few weeks away I have started styling my home in a slightly beachy design. My inspiration for this frame comes from Wayfair. These Cape Cod Beach Frames range in price from $45.00 up to $129.00. My version for this beach frame was completely FREE!
Wayfair’s Frame: $118.00
Supplies I used:
Scrap pieces of 1 x 4
Left over stain & paint
To get started I cut 5 pieces of 1 x 4 to about 11″ wide. One length of wood I already had stained from another project, the other 4 pieces I dry brushed white and aqua paint. After the paint dried I flipped the slats over and screwed them together using some Mending Plates I had around the house. If you want the frame to have a more weathered look like the original you should sand some of the paint and stain off. I liked the less weathered look for my living room better so I didn’t sand mine. Flip it right side up and attach two clips from an old frame. I then inserted a piece of white cardboard with a black and white photo on top.
This project took about an hour in total from cutting the wood, to painting it to assembly! I love the end result so much I think I will make a few more to go with my summer decor. The photo I used is a picture of my dad and I fishing when I was a kid!
