If you follow me on Instagram (erinacolburn), you know that I like to take a lot of pictures. The best part about these pictures is that they are taken anywhere and everywhere, and they really capture everyday moments in our lives.
I was working on another project that went wrong and had a simple stained frame made from 1x2s left over. It was sitting around for a few months and inspiration finally struck me one day to display my Instagram photos.
I made the frame by cutting down 1x2x8s, and nailing them together. I stained them with Minwax's Jacobean. This frame measures about 24" x 18".
To make the actual display, I used twine and a staple gun (which I already had), mini clothespins, and 4x4 Instagram Prints. Walgreen's prints 4x4s now, and they almost always have some type of promo code available on RetailMeNot for prints.
I laid out my photos to determine where to place my twine and stapled the lengths of twine into the back of the frame.
This took a few minutes, and then the frame was set to go and hanging in our upstairs hallway.
