This summer we started replacing the picket fence in the front yard. We were left with a pile of picket fence panels that were....um, perfectly aged? I thought to myself, "What to do, what to do, with all those panels?" Then the idea hit me! I could make distressed picture frames!
We had purchased a few painting from a local artist, David Boyd, Jr. I have mentioned him before in one of my posts, and if you have not had the chance to check out his work, you should. You can view his work on his blog, Compelled To Paint.
We watched a few videos on youtube.com and then just winged it. I hope to make more in the future. I do like them as is, but I also plan to sand and paint a few in different colors. The hardest part about the project is removing the pickets from the panel, and finding pickets that are not warped.
Thanks for stopping by!
