A while ago I posted asking for opinions on some wall decor we were working on for the living room. It’s been done for a while and I’m finally getting around to posting about it.
Recap: We had three ceiling tiles and were trying to figure out a way to hang them on the wall.
N decided to build wooden frames for them and then we painted the frames. Making the frames was really easy and the wood cost less than $4. There was no cost for the paint because we just used paint we had at home.
To make the frames N measured out the size of the tiles and cut the wood. He cut the corner at a 45 degree angle so they would fit together to form a frame.
We were able to enough for one frame out of each strip of wood.
Then we put them around the ceiling tile to make sure it lined up.
N glued and stapled the corners together.
It took a while to decide on what colour to paint them. We debated between off-white, light gray and dark gray. In the end we decided to paint the frames light gray. We took the same paint we used to paint the living room and added some white paint.
