Here is my knock off version of a Restoration Hardware picture frame.
|Finished with ASCP - Old White and Dark Wax|
Here it is before the wood filler and paint.
I bought a mat and a picture glass w/backing kit from Michael's.
I added a simple trim to hold the glass around the 8x10 opening. I just mitered the corners with half of the wood overhanging to hold in the glass. I glued to the frame with wood glue.
Below is the Inspiration Piece from Restoration Hardware:
|I made my version of the one on the left ($99)|
Here is the molding I used around the base and the top.
4 - 13" 1x2
2 - 11 1x2
2 - 13" 1x4
Molding for base, mitered
Molding for the opening, mitered
Measurements and plans:
|Create the frame using 2 of 13" 1x2 boards (mitered) and 2 of the 11" 1x2 boards (mitered) to make an opening 8x10|
|Attach the remaining 13" boards to create a box|
|Attach the 1x4 13" boards to the top and the bottom of the box|
|Optional - add decorative mitered trim along the top and bottom pieces|
|Add a small strip of molding around the opening to hold the glass in the frame. (See photo above)|
