This project didn’t require any power tools. I just picked up an already cut 2×2 piece of finished plywood and stained it with ebony minwax stain. I wanted it to be black but I still wanted to see the wood grain.
My original plan was to have my hubby cut out where I wanted to attach the frame and turn the whole piece into a permanent frame. However, after thinking about it I figured it would be easier to just hang the picture frame on the wood with a nail. This way I can change out the picture easier because the 8×10 that is in there is temporary until I get the other one made. Also, you could change out the frame if you wanted to for other colors or shapes.
