Picture Frames Are Finished: I Have Way Too Much Free Time

The good news is I finally finished the picture frames that I decided to make from my leftover moldings.  Now I can finally throw away those few remaining scraps with a free conscience. 

I wouldn't recommend this project unless you have a lot of free time.  It definitely took longer than I thought it would.  When I finished the first small frame, the first thing that went through my mind was wow, that was a lot of work for a little frame.

I also made two 8 1/2" x 11" frames for BF's office. He has a lot of blank walls and a couple of certificates that needed frames. Making the larger frames was a bit more satisfying but the pictures of those didn't turn out so well since there's nothing in the frames at this point.

I'll post instructions in case you too have no life and plenty of free time to waste  enjoy making useful objects with recycled materials!

    1. You stopped at one, you're obviously smarter than I am! Or at least value your time.

      I'm not on Pinterest but am thinking I should be. Are you? Am I totally missing out
