Fingerpaint frame

We've had a blank wall in our breakfast area and nothing was the right scale for it.  I taped one of my son's fingerpaintings there and it looked silly.  But it gave me an idea.  I went out to my husband's scrap wood pile and found some old deck rails from my brother-in-law's old deck.  I ran them down the middle on the table saw and mitered the edges and then just stapled them together on the backside.  It's very "primitive" but hey, it's a frame for finger painting! 

It's rough, but I think that makes it perfect.

  1. I love wood with a history. Absolutely love the frame's roughness. It makes a good contrast to the artwork...
