I kept myself busy working on my dining room project all week. The ceiling is done, crown molding done. I'm almost ready to paint the entire thing. I need to get the pics from my phone to share the progress with you. That would be soon.
For now, I'm gonna share this little project I managed to tackled in between all the major things going on. I can't wait to start decorating for Christmas, and this quilt is the one to go a top my fireplace in the family room.
Red and white's going to be my Christmas theme this year, so, I just had to choose an easy design for this project, because I was going to use all those remnant pieces of ¼" plywood I used in the dining room.
The design was sketched on paper, and these are the materials you'll need:
-This post contains affiliate links-
- 1 - 33" x 33" piece of ¼" Plywood material for the back.
- 12' Screen Bead for the frame.
- 3" Squares and Triangles as stated in the above picture (¼" plywood material).
- Wood glue.
- Red and white paint.
- Sanding sponge
- Saw, Miter Saw
The first step was to cut 3" strips out of ¼" plywood.
It also worked for the triangles, the angled cut was the only change.
All those little squares and triangles were cut in a matter of minutes.
I used a sanding sponge to smooth out all those sides before painting all the pieces.
Once they were dry, the puzzle was put together. Keeping the pieces within the clamped frame.
After aligning the entire thing, I began to glue the pieces onto the ¼" backer.
I decided to stain the frame to give it some contrast, then, it was also glued onto the backer board.
I see little gaps that bother the perfectionist in me. But hey, overall I like it. I'm now debating the idea of distressing it a little bit or maybe not.
What do you think?
