  6. if you buy unfinished frames, like i have to since there is no store where i live, you can stain them to look like weathered barn wood. take a mayo jar or mason jar, fill with vinegar and add steel wool...let it sit for a few days and the vinegar will dissolve the steel wool and create a stain you can brush on with a foam or bristle brush....apply one coat at a time untill you get the level of grey you want, let dry between coats. works well on unfinished wood....enjoy!

  7. Where do I get metal sheets and metal clips? I can't find anything like this. Please respond. I want to make these so bad but I need this information first. Also, what size pictures are in the frames? Did you lose glass on the frames? This information would help so much.
    Thank you,
    Laura

    1. Hi Laura! These products are all available at Craft Warehouse. The frames, metal sheets,clips everything. If you are not in the Pacific Northwest I am not sure where you could get them besides checking your local craft store. Thanks for the comment and happy crafting!

  8. Hi, LOVE this...any way you could tell me the brand name of the frame you used since there is not a Craft Warehouse near me? Also, what type of metal sheets did you use? I found galvanized steel at Home Depot, 28 gauge and there is no way a staple is going through that! Thanks!

  10. I called Craft warehouse and was told the frames were made by Gemline and style #909; however, it looks like they are working on the website and I'm still having trouble finding these frames! To me, the type of frame makes the project. If anyone finds them anywhere else, please share.
