Deseret Industries Picture Frame Trays

31 Dec


If I could have a dollar for every time I said ” I could make that”, I could quit my job and have a lot of time to “make that”.  I saw these at a boutique and loved them.  I also have a very large collection of frames that I have collected over the years .  Many of these were purchased at the DI for $1, so this is very inexpensive project.

I started by taking out the glass and spray painting them an off white color.  These would be cute in many other colors, but I really liked the simple white.  I was a little impatient while painting these and applied my second coat before the first coat was dry.  The paint bubbled and I had to sand them.  I was just going to sand them and then apply another coat of the paint, but I really liked the sanded look.  I added a final coat of a semi gloss spray sealer.

I then attached 2 inexpensive cabinet pulls that I got at Ace Hardware for $1.99.  I then cut a piece of fabric a little larger than the opening.  These were 8×10 inch frames so I cut the fabric10x12 inches.  I glued this around the cardboard insert in the frame.  I added a piece of quilting flannel under this to give it a little more bulk.

I then placed the fabric in the frame and finished the back off by applying glue on the back of the frame and laying a piece of brown wrapping paper on top of the glue and trimming around frame with an exacto knife.  This gives it a very finished look.
