Striped and Layered Photo Frame

This week is turning into a parade of wall art!  Today’s model is the Striped and Layered Photo Frame.

I really love picture frames that are layered with different matting and textures.  I pondered many options, but always got stuck on how to attach the very top layer and still be able to easily change out the picture when I wanted.

This was my quick and easy solution.

I painted the wood piece the method described here, and this time did the top layer in stripes.  (Painter’s tape really helps for that.)

I also painted a cheep Ikea wooden frame I had lying around.  It was just a quick coat of white, and a wipe on, wipe off of stain.

Once it was all dry, I figured out where the picture would be centered, and nailed a tiny nail  right on to the wood.

Then I hung the frame on the nail (using the hanger that’s already provided).

It’s another quick and easy project.

  1. I love these- I was thinking of doing something similar for all the way down my loooooooong hallway. We just installed board and batten and painted the walls above it Colorado gray- I thought a repeated frame just like this would look great. I love how yours turned out!!
