A couple of years ago, we redecorated our bedroom.  In doing so, we took down the wainscoting that encircled the room.  There was nothing wrong with it,  but after 15 years I was just a little tired of it. Wainscoting/ beadboard  is interesting, it comes with it’s own molding, two different moldings, one for the top and one for the bottom.  The wainscoting paneling fits into the groove on the molding trim and that groove hides all the rough  edges of the paneling.  So, because I had a workshop full of trim and paneling,  and because I’m working on a Christmas gift, this project was born. Looking around the workshop, I also came up with these rusty galvanized roofing tins.  Perfect for layering my frame. The galvanized tins gave me the dimensions for my frame.  Overall, the frame would be 17″ x 22″.

The wainscoting molding was cut with a miter saw.

The paneling was then marked for cutting.  The paneling was about 1/2″  longer than the opening allowing for where the paneling gets tucked under the molding. Tin and Reclaimed Wood Frame,  Wainscotiing , Roofing Tin Project, diy, handmade frame

This is the back of the molding.  You can see the ridge where the paneling will fit.

Before attaching the paneling permanently,  it was painted this gray/green color, and then another coat of dry brushed white was added on top of that. Tin and Reclaimed Wood Frame,  Wainscotiing , Roofing Tin Project, diy, handmade frame

Could have left it with just the white wash, but decided to go over the whole piece with stain, this would give a bit more contrast with the white frame. Tin and Reclaimed Wood Frame,  Wainscotiing , Roofing Tin Project, diy, handmade frame

Cut a backing board out of leftover plywood.  Using my frame as my guide, cut the backing board 1/2″ smaller than the  frame. Tin and Reclaimed Wood Frame,  Wainscotiing , Roofing Tin Project, diy, handmade frame

 

Using builders adhesive, liquid nails, attached the paneling and the molding to my backing board

Make sure it’s firmly attached, clamp if necessary, and let dry.

Tin can now be attached by screws or  again with use of the builders adhesive.

Prepare the next level…it’s just a scrap piece (6 1/2″x10″) of wood wrapped with burlap.  If you use black burlap as I have, you’ll need to paint the block of wood black, the open weave of the burlap allows the light colored wood to show through.  Once the paint is dry , wrap the burlap around the wood, securing it with staples, working from the center of each side out to the edges. This piece too, can now be glued, screwed, or nailed into place.

If you’re looking for a piece of glass, I prefer the dollar store.   Just buy a cheap 5″x7″ frame.  These frames used 5″x7″ glass,  the price for a pane of glass at Michaels was $4.00. Tin and Reclaimed Wood Frame,  Wainscotiing , Roofing Tin Project, diy, handmade frame

Can’t show who is going into these frames permanently since they will be a Christmas gift, so for now that’s a picture of my youngest son and me.  I’ve changed a bit since then.
