How to decorate a Large Wall Farmhouse Style
I recently shared my Valentine decorated divided tray box, promising I would share how the divided wood tray was made, since then the tray has been hung on our large wall that became available when we moved the furniture around in the family room. Today I will be sharing another new piece that was added to the ever growing decorated large farmhouse Styled wall.
The new piece that was added is our farmhouse styled open shelving made from a folding screen to display some of your favorite pieces farmhouse pieces antique scale, white and blue pitcher, ceramic chicken along with some old books all in front of a wood framed mirror with rusted metal iron scroll all speaks farmhouse decor to me.
I think I should have added “industrial ” to the the title of “How to decorate a large wall Farmhouse style”. As you can see on the tray it has two industrial handles and wire metal mesh was added to the shelf and blank frame.
The shelf was repurposed from a decorative room divider screen I picked up a long time ago and never got around to putting it together or adding material to it….now I am happy that I didn’t, what was done – a piece of wire metal metal mesh was added along with some wood shelf brackets. One thing I love about shelves is you can set the tone and style of your home just by adding a few of your favorite pieces in a group setting.
Now on to how the divided wood box tray was made. Are you still with me? I think maybe I should have made this two separate post…but a promise is a promise on how I would share how my divided Wood Box tray was made…so here you go…as promised
OK I am going to try and get this right, but since my husband just does it without any plans, I will try and explain this the best I can.
Plywood was cut into 3″ strips
each piece cut in 1/4 inch in on each edge
1/8 of an inch was cut into each piece of wood for placement of the back pieces measuring.20 1/2
Taking all four pieces a frame was made using wood glue and then stapled
the back piece was added and attached the same way as the frame was with wood glue and staples
The four 3″ wide pieces were cut for the center, 2 of them were cut 21 3/4 in length and the other two were cut 21″ Once the size of the openings were determined, each piece was measured for placement, notches were cut half way down on each piece and interlocked with the other creating 9 squares. OK I hope I am explaining this right…if I have lost you please leave a comment or email me and I will try and explain it better.. It’s a good thing I took pictures …right?
once it was fitted it was then taken out and wood glue applied and placed back into the box to dry. Two industrial handles were added to each side of the box creating a tray.
