This Easy DIY Poster Frame post is sponsored by Minwax. All opinions are my own.
When I bought this poster a few years ago, I intended to create an easy frame to hang it. Here we are a few years later and finally getting around to it.
This frame was created using a few wood lattice strips, nails, and burlap for hanging. For this project, I used the Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, Minwax Oil-Based Wood Finish Penetrating Stain in Early American and Special Walnut, and the Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane in Clear Satin.I stained the pieces using the Minwax Oil-Based Stain in a combo of Early American and Classic Walnut.
Before getting started, I added the Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner to the strips in order to create an even stain finish. The wood conditioner helps to condition raw wood to avoid blotchiness, and helps to ensure that the stain goes on evenly.
After allowing it to dry for a couple of hours, using a cloth rag, I added one coat of each stain color. I am seriously in love with the color!
After letting the strain dry, I applied a coat of Polyurethane and let it dry, then added the frame to the poster using adhesive. You should let your Poly and adhesive dry 2-4 hours before hanging.
Then applied two strips to the top of the poster and two strips to the bottom.The poster should be sandwiched between each strip at the top and each strip and the bottom.
After the strips are dried, add some decorative nails (optional) and a hanging fabric of your choice. If you don’t want to use the nails which, you should add your hanging fabric inside of the frame strips. I went with burlap since it’s what I had on had and it’s pretty strong.
The Minwax Oil-Based system was perfect to use on this project because of how deeply penetrates the wood, in a beautiful and rich color. With this stain, a little goes a long way! I am still using the 8oz cans that I have been using all year to create beautiful projects, and still have plenty left over. This project can be completed in just few hours.
