How to Make a Unique Chippy Frame

While looking through my pile of scrap wood I ran across a few pieces of old trim that just worked together.

I cut the top triangular piece and created a base with another scrap of wood, then added a third trim piece to the front with wood glue and nails.

I painted the whole piece with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint which gave it the cohesive chippy look then added a small clip to the center. 

A small vintage photo of two BFF's was clipped to the frame and is easy to change out whenever you want to add a new photo.
