Making a picture frame from old fencing

Well here's another use for recycling old fence parts.
I needed a rustic looking frame for a painting that I had finished.
The pickets were too short so I used the cross piece
that the pickets were attached too.
Here they are in there unfinished glory.

 After scraping and sanding most of the paint off the boards
my dad made the frame for me.
I then stained and added poly.
Here's the finished work.

Here's a close up showing how rustic it looks.
I thought the paint showing through
 added to the look of age.

One final view.

I hope the scripture will speak to you.

May the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in everyway.
The Lord be with all of you. 
2 Thessalonians 3:16


  1. A beautiful frame for a beautiful picture! Very lovely!

  2. A very peaceful, encouraging verse --a good way to start each day.

  3. Thank you so much. I'm glad you enjoyed the verse.
