Rustic Driftwood Picture Frame

Are you ready for another driftwood project 
before the summer is over?


I built a frame using a very long board I found on the beach. I just love boards that wash up, they usually have such a great patina and everywhere there was a nail or a screw is the most beautiful rusty mark.

This was actually my very first attempt at cutting 45 degree angles with my chop saw.

I admit I'm a little afraid of this saw...


My cuts came out very well if I do say so myself... I glued and stapled each corner.

I used clamps going each way until the glue dried... You really need these clamps!


I drilled a hole in the top of the frame and added this rusty screw eye. 

The screw eye was actually attached to this board when I found it on the beach.


I added a picture of my in-laws circa 1959 with a heavy cardboard backing.


It's a very old picture with some awesome color distortions.
