The DIY journey of a California citygirl and a Montana farmboy

Farmhouse Framed Prints

Last year I was crushing over all the Farmhouse Prints – so I started wondering how I could make my own with the resources I had (long vinyl cutter, no large printers). After a bit of thinking I created a way that worked in my budget and was super easy to do.Here is my DIY Video Tutorial for you to watch to get the basic idea: You will need:

  • Engineering print from Office Depot ($3) or a poster print from Costco ($6)
  • MDF Board (snag from Home Depot or go to a thrift store and buy an old print that has MDF as backing)
  • 1×2 Wood Strips
  • Modge Podge
  • Wood glue
  • Circular Saw (to cut your wood and MDF board)
  • Staple Gun

Now – head over to this link for a step by step process on this DIY:DIY Wall Art If you are using old wood like I did (I snagged the sticks that were stuck in old signs that go in yards during voting time) you will want to clean them. Check out that tutorial here:Cleaning Old WoodYou will have this project done in no time! Let me know if you have any questions and save these to your Pinterest account for later! Love,Kelly

    Hi! Where did you get the lights on either end of your mantel? I love those and have been looking for something like that

    1. Aren’t they so fun!? I looked forever and found them at TJ Max. I know that doesn’t help. But check them out – they have tons. I also looked at Wayfair, Amazon, Walmart, Overstock and DownEast. All these stores and great options for inexpensive! Good luck!

    I’m thinking of using the “This is Us” as the theme for my daughters wedding shower. Could you tell me where you got the letters?
