chicken wire frame how to...

 


This is the easiest thing ever. Grab some 2x4's or 2x2's, make a square or rectangle and nail or glue them together. (above)


Then when all fitted together add the special vinegar and steel wool mixture to age your wood. Let dry then paint you frame. (below)


 I wanted to show you what brown glase does to your frame when added. In the picture below the top and right side have the glaze on them, it ages you wood and adds a brown coloring to your wood and painted ares it seeps into the cracks and makes it nice and old looking.
 Add your chicken wire with a small upolstry stapler I got mine at Joanns for  $10 bucks. Be sure to pull you chicken wire tight while attaching to wood.
 
You can hang jewlery or pictures.
