home: made [ picture ledge ]

A really simple way to show off pictures and photos is by using a ledge. Rather than hanging frames straight to the wall using a picture ledge gives you flexibility to group different pictures as well as swapping them around if needed.

Picture ledges are popular in stores and can be easily found with prices starting from under £10, but sometimes the length and depth isn’t to your suiting. So why not try making your own.

By using just three lengths of wood [ depth and length your choice ], some wood glue, clamps, paint and screws you can create the perfect picture ledge for your home. If you are looking to keep costs as low as possible use MDF, alternatively use plywood. These you can easily get hold of at B&Q or Homebase [ you will be able to get them cut for you as well ].

Below are some tutorials to guide you.
