DIY Monogram Family Quote Frame

Hey everyone!  I am happy to be here at Oh My! Creative!  Today I have a fun project to share – this DIY Monogram Family Quote Frame.

It was pretty simple, but I love it!  It makes me think of spring with the bright color (wishful thinking).

It all started with a dusty frame…

I have had this frame for a while, I found it in a pile of free wood, I knew some day I would use it.

I decided to finally pull it out and make a sign with it.  I wanted a rustic back ground so I re used wood from an old project that had been knocked off the wall and broken (kids!).   I started by seeing how they would fit in the frame.  One piece was a little too wide, so I marked it and cut it with a jigsaw.  It fits perfect now!

The old frame was pretty sturdy, but had some cracks, so I filled them.

I cleaned the frame really well and sanded it.  Then I primed and painted!  I like to buy the mis tinted little jars of paint at Home Depot, they are only 50 cents!

Then I glued in the boards with my Gorilla Glue and let it dry.

I was wanting a monogram look so I cut out the letter of our last name and painted it on.  But I didn’t like it…hmmmm

I just seemed to plain, so I looked for family quotes and found this one.  I quickly made a stencil out of contact paper and dry brushed over it.  If I use hardly any paint, it doesn’t bleed.

Gave it a little distressing, and I was done!!  Oh, I did change the wire hanger on the back so the frame could hang the other direction, forgot to take a picture of that step!

I love repurposed wood, this was from an old fence.  I like the overlapping quote over the letter C, it looks much better than being all alone.

Do you like the color?  My husband wasn’t too hot on it, but I think it is fun a bright….ready for Spring!!
