A MODERN FARMHOUSE PICTURE FRAME
You know it has to be some sort of salvaging, in this case thrifting, going on right?
We took a 25 cent frame and gave it a modern farmhouse feel.
Here’s what we used:

- Thrifted Picture Frame
- White Paint
- Putty Knife
- Scrap wood
- 2 Screws
- Japanese Mini Saw (so handy)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Flower Stems
Here’s what we did:
- Painted over frame with white paint. Sanded some parts down to make it a rustic look.
- Since we didn’t want the curves of the frame, we spackled, using a putty knife, the inside to create a more flush look.
- The spackle dried overnight and was sanded in the morning to smooth it out.
- Scrap wood pieces were cut, with the mini saw, for the back and front. The front was measured out to go all the way across. The back piece fit inside the frame opening so it would easily hang on a wall.
- The back scrap wood was attached with hot glue.
- The front piece of wood was laid across the top. A pilot hole was drilled on each end.
- With a screwdriver, the scrap wood was attached to the front.
Tip – If using spackle, screw on the wood side rather than the spackle side so it doesn’t crack.
Add whatever flower/greenery stems you like and your modern farmhouse picture frame is ready to go.
Now, you can customize this however you like. We didn’t want to paint the wood trim but you obviously could. Another thought would be to stamp words on the scrap wood pieces i.e. love for Valentine’s Day. Since we wanted this super easy and customizable, it was left as is.
