Picture Frames from Cut It Out :: Review & Giveaway

Cut It Out specializes in unfinished wood letters, words, frames and wall shelves. By offering you product that is unfinished, you can turn your custom ideas into reality. You have the freedom to create your own project from their unfinished wood pieces. I personally love the look of cutout picture frames. I was having a hard time finding them in my area and I discovered Cut It Out online.

I received three 8x10 unfinished picture frames to review. The styles I chose were Balboa, Chandler and Grace. The frames came with a sheet that gave three great tips for turning them into fantastic home decor. That really helped as I began my project.

I gathered the supplies that I needed to get started. I used a foam brush, acrylic paint and a glossy clear coat spray. I chose several acrylic paint colors that went well together. A Sanding Block is optional. You could use that to give the edges a rustic look.

A great tip from Cut It Out was to purchase some cheap frames from the dollar store. Then just remove the glass and place it in your new frames! The unfinished frames from Cut It Out do not come with glass. The frames do come with backing so they are ready to hang.

It took about 2-3 coats of acrylic paint to cover the frames. The frames took the paint very well and it was simple to paint even the decorative edge. I ended up using a small brush to fill in spots on my last coat of paint. After you get them painted, let them dry for 24 hours. Finally, spray on a light glossy acrylic topcoat (optional). 

Ta-da! Here are my finished frames! I love how they look. Notice I am not afraid of bold colors! I think I might hang them on a white wall and let the frames give my room a nice pop of color. I still haven't decided where I want them to go. But I love that I was able to choose the paint colors myself! Anyone should be able to take decorative wood cutouts from Cut It Out and create your own home decor!
