Heather found an idea on Pinterest to make picture clipboards and thought our stairway would be a great place to hang them. Here is the inspiration for our project. Click here for the tutorial from LoveGrowsWild.
We started with a plain 1x12 board and i cut it into 13 inch lengths. Sanded down the edges, applied a wood conditioner and then I used the dark stain, Kona, that we used on Trigg's bed project.
Then we added the bulldog clips that Heather picked up at Hobby Lobby.
I used Minwax Paste Finishing Wax for these frames, it gave it a good finished look without having to use polyurethane.
