I was instantly inspired to create my own chicken wire peg board, but where ashley-ann was able to re-purpose an old mirror from elsewhere in her home, I didn't have that luxury. Since frames can be so expensive to buy (especially very large ones), my mother and I put our heads together, and struck upon a plan; to make one ourselves.
So part one of the DIY began- we bought some wooden molding from Homebase, and cut it to size using a miter saw (the beauty of which is that it allows you to determine accurately the angle of your cut- meaning achieving the 90 degree angles needed for a professional looking frame was a doddle.) Having screwed the frame together, I treated all the knots with some specialist chemicals (because apparently that's something you have to do..) and finally slapped on a coat of paint- I bought a tiny sample pot of blue paint, again from Homebase.
