An elegant Autumn poem and a few touches of gold were my inspiration.
I explained how I did this with my chalkboard sign tutorial, but I’ll share again.
selected the link Oversized Prints, then clicked on Engineering Prints.
I selected the 18 x 24 size and black and white print.
I completed my order online and then picked it up the next day at the store.
“A print that size must have been super expensive, right?!”
Nope. It set me back a whole $1.83!
made from 1/4 inch birchwood plywood (18 x 24).
but I’m going to cover that all up! 🙂
Next step is to build your frame for the sign.
Nothing fancy here, just a simple frame to complete the look.
I went to Lowes and grabbed some Sierra Pine 2×4 primed wood cut to 20.5 x 22.
While I was at Lowes. I picked up some braces to connect the wood.
Use your braces to attach the boards together.
Little Tip: I didn’t use the screws that came with the braces.
I actually used them to screw the back board on to the frame,
which is the last step in the project.
For the braces, I found some shorter screws in my garage.
I was just afraid that the brace screws might be too long and
come through the wood to the front side of the frame.
I screwed the board to the frame in all the corners and
a few places down each side of the board.
That’s it. Super simple right!
Anyone can make this because it requires no power tools.
I had the wood cut at Lowes and I just used a regular hand screwdriver for all the screws.
I just love the quote:
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
The quote inspired me to add some little touches of my own gold to the display.
I got my decoupage groove on with a gold leaf plate.
And I decoupaged a little pumpkin to gold perfection. 🙂
I love the way my Autumn shelves came together this year.
Simple but with a little flash of gold. Just like the Autumn season.
