Large Picture Frame Display Shelf DIY

Gail from My Repurposed Life is a self-proclaimed frame hoarder and has many gorgeous frames that she has picked up from thrift stores and estate sales.

Always happy to recycle, Ali used drawers from a thrift store dresser and deconstructed them into wood pieces to create a shelf and shadow box to fit behind her beautiful picture frame.

Once she had it all assembled, she used spray paint to make everything the same color.

This is an easy and fun DIY you can make to display your favorite trinkets, nicknacks, and even picture frames!

This is Gail’s finished display shelf:


Gail’s shelf looks almost exactly like this Restoration Hardware shelf, which retails for $249!
