DIY Pallet Frame

Hey there everyone! It’s Chelsea from Making Home Base. I’m back again with DIY project to share!

A few weeks ago I saw a picture frame at Target that totally inspired this project. It was frame made from “pallet wood” painted white. Very cute, but at 29.99 it was out of my budget so I decided I was going to try to make a version of my own!

Ever have a project when you get about half way through you just aren’t sure if it’s going to work out or not? Well that’s how this project went for me. There were moments when I wasn’t sure it was going to turn out. Then it did and I was elated!

DIY Pallet Frame

I made my pallet frame by using a dollar store picture frame, cut pieces of ply wood, three yard sticks, and wood glue.

DIY Pallet Picture Frame

I glued four pieces of plywood to frame out the dollar store picture frame. Then I painted the whole thing white. After the paint had dried I started cutting pieces of yard stick to fit around the parameter of the picture frame. That was when I wasn’t sure my vision was going to turn out :) I didn’t create a pattern before cutting the yard stick pieces. DIY FAIL. It was a big headache to get the pieces to fit just so. I finally got it to work and I’m so happy I didn’t give up on this one!

After gluing all the yard stick pieces into place I painted them gray then, I distressed the whole thing. I love how you can see the ticks from the yard sticks after distressing.

I’m loving the rustic look. It will have a new home in master bedroom that I was making over with yellow and gray. I can’t wait!

Thank you so much Jess for having me over :) Love ya girl! Have a great day friends!

How perfect is that little frame…she needs to send it to me, right?
