I am super excited to share today’s post about Farmhouse DIY wall decor with you. This easy to make DIY farmhouse hanger and printable is so cheerful and bright. If you’ve been wanting a farmhouse she shed, this should help with the wait.
Instead of a normal square frame, I livened it up a bit with a cottage roof. Its perfect for either farmhouse or cottage decor and I think you could place it in your livingroom, bedroom, or even a covered porch.
Welcome back to Waste Not Wednesday! For those who have been following along for a while, you’ll know Waste Not Wednesday as a linky party. But Sam and I have change things up a bit. Each Wednesday we will be bringing you fun projects not only from us but some of our favourite bloggers. This week’s theme is Furniture Makeovers!
1 length of 1″ by 2″ lumber
120 grit sandpaper
1 1/8″ eyelets
Cording or twine to hang
Create the Printable
Download the printable onto a flashdrive just as it is. The file is large enough to ensure the print quality is good. Take the file to your local printers. I used Staples and had them print out the printable in poster quality 24″ by 36″.
Have the printer company open the file and place the printable shed picture an inch from the bottom edge of the poster.
The Cottage Frame
Take the 1″ by 2″ lumber and cut out the following lengths.
1 length 24″ long with two 90 degree straight end cuts. This will be the hanger bottom.
2 lengths each 15″ long with two 22.5 degree angle cuts. To form the cottage roof line.
1 length 3″ long with one 22.5 degree angle cut and a 90 degree straight cut. This will be the chimney.
Once cut, sand with 150 grit paper. Using either a sponge brush or a rag dipped in walnut stain, stain the wood.
Place the wood onto a clean surface. Wearing gloves to protect your hands, paint the stain onto the three sides you can see. Let sit 5 minutes, then wipe off with a clean cloth. Leave to dry. Flip over, then repeat the process on the one unstained side and the ends.
Next add the screw eyes. Place them six inches from the edge, measuring from the longest end of the angle. I suggest placing the first screw eye in one side, then lining up the second piece to replicate the placement.
Using wood glue or E6000, take the two piece of woods for the cottage roof and glue the end together to form the peak. Set aside and let dry while you add the bottom frame.
Apply glue to the entire 24″ length of wood, be extra careful to ensure there is glue along the edge that will be the top edge of your frame. Once the glue has been applied, line up the lower edge with the bottom edge of your poster. I placed two cans of beans on mine for weight and let dry.
Attaching the Wood Frame to the Poster
Mark center on your poster at 12 inches from the edge.
Take the cottage roofline and apply glue all along the backside of the wood. Flip over and line the center peak up to the center mark, placing it on the white portion as high as you like above the printable area.
As soon as you have the frame attached measure to make sure the two sides are even. My sides are 9″ from thje edge of the poster. If you chose to have yours higher or lower just make sure its even on both sides. Apply weight on top of the wood until dry. About an hour.
Using a staple gun stapke the paper to the wood on the backside, especially at the upper peak. Mak sure the staples cross over the seam in the middle. Flip over.
Apply glue to the angled end of the faux chimey. Let dry.
Attach cord or twine to the hanger using the eye hooks.
