DIY Photo Clipboard Frames

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.
The finished product hung up.

Another Pinterest success!
