I had a bunch of extra MDF board in the garage
when we rented the house...
I used newspaper as a pattern.
folded it in 4th's and then cut the curly edge I wanted.
Laid it on my board and traced it.
So I used the bandsaw to cut the awesome edge on the boards.
Then I used the router to give it a finished edge.
You could just sand it smooth!
I had a heck of a time getting these pictures printed.
Walgreens wouldn't let me pick up the pictures I uploaded
and sent to their store online...they said I needed PROOF
that they weren't copyrighted.
I was 30 minutes from home and told them I
wasn't going to come back if I left.
They were so rude and refused to sell me
the already printed pictures.
I left in a huff.
I uploaded the pics to Walmart and went and
picked them up an hour later.
I set out plastic bags for a drop cloth...free right?
I painted only the top and edges with that white paint
I got for another project for 50 cents!
After it dried, I sanded the edges just a tiny bit.
And used spray adhesive and a brayer to adhere
the picture to the white side of the board.
Put some hanging hardware on the back.
2 screw eyes and a wire.
Lovely. I love it!
This was my Mother's Day gift to myself!
Thanks to my friend, Jodi for taking the pictures
that were too professional for me
to buy at Walgreens! :)
