My 10 yr old nephew was visiting so I decided we’d make something together for his mom. We made a distressed frame just like this one out of poplar. I had him gather up some small concrete pieces laying around and put them in a plastic sack. He lightly beat the wood pieces with it. After that is when he lost his interest and asked to play video games.
Anyway, the frame was so easy and turned out nice enough that I decided to make one for myself.
I think I finished it with a couple light rubbings of gell stain and wipe-on poly.
I used foam backer from hobby lobby and hardboard for the back.
The picture is one I took near 39°54’8.08”, -105°37’2.96” in Colorado.
