Image of Frame Shelf

One of my favorite DIY's I have pinned on Pinterest have been these cute Frame Shelves Pinned from Shanty-2-Chic Blog. Most of the time when I pin any DIY, My intentions are to actually do them at some point in the future.
I am not going to go over step by step what to do, plus I was a little impatient in creating these cute shelves and I forgot to take photos of each step. So, if you would like a more detailed version of this DIY definitely go check it out the original on Shanty-2-Chic’s Blog. The only thing that really differs theirs from mine is the way I decided to hang mine (I used saw tooth picture hangers) and I did not use a nail gun, so there also was no need for wood filler.  *I tried wood filler to smooth the area around the nail but I found that it was not necessary and just made the area look worse than if I just painted over the nail.*

·      If you do not have any way of cutting your wood, I have seen Home Depot cut wood for people right there in the store. I am not sure if Lowe's does but It could not hurt to ask an employee. It would be best to have all your measurements before hand.

·      If you do not have any frames lying around your house, you can always look for inexpensive frames at stores such as Goodwill, TJ Max, or Marshalls, Etc.

·      I used E6000 Glue on one frame (not shown) because it was not made of wood or even plastic, I am not entirely sure what it is made of but I was unable to nail it to the wood box. E6000 glue was used to adhere the two parts together.

·      If you like the way your frame looks and do not want to paint it, I still recommend you paint the wooden box part. It gives your frame shelf a more finished look. All you would need to do is use painters tape to cover the areas you do not want painted.

Thank you 
for this cute awesome DIY!
