Dec 17th 2015 at 10:25 PM

Picture frames are very important. They do give life to the pictures and also decorate the home. There are many different designs that have been created in the past. These designs differ in terms of the designs and the style. The materials of the frames also play an important role in the final look of the frame.

To create that classy look, you may choose to buy the antique frames. However, there is nothing as satisfying as making your own picture frames. This is because you will be able to make a design that is unique to you. You may draw inspiration from different areas. If you want that elegant look, you should consider making the reclaimed wood frame.

Making The Frame

Before you begin the process, you will have to decide if you are going to make the reclaimed wood picture frame or the reclaimed wooden mirrors. Both of these designs will be a wonderful addition to your home décor.

It is important for you to buy the required tools and materials for the job.

· A barn wood

· A miter saw for making the perfect angles on the frames

· Hot glue and also a glue gun

· Screws that will be used to attach the wire

You will be required to measure the wood. You need to know the size of the picture frame that you want. This is because the size of the frame will determine the size of the wood that you need to cut. You should ensure that you measure the perfect size. For the rustic features, you may consider cutting some of the wood in smaller sizes.

Once you measure the wood, proceed to cut it. You will be using the miter saw to make the perfect wood cuts. The saw will help you to cut the perfect size. However, you need not fret if your wood is not as accurate. This will help to enhance the appearance of the frame as it will help in giving the wood frame that rustic nature. You need to cut 4 pieces of the wood to make the perfect frame.

Fixing the reclaimed wood picture frame will be the final step. Take the pieces and fit them together with the hot glue. Remember to use the glue gun to avoid any accidents. Now that you have fixed the wood frame, it is time to screw the hanging wire. You will need to complete the frame with the coating metal to keep the wood and the photo in one secure place.

When it comes to making the reclaimed wooden mirrors, you will need to choose the right space for the mirror. You will also be required to choose the right type of wood to create that long lasting effect.

There is no limit to what you can create with reclaimed wood. In addition to the reclaimed wood frames, you may consider making the reclaimed tables and many other projects. The secret to durable items is finding quality and good reclaimed wood.
