- Head to your local hardware store for strips of slim moulded railing for the square frames or wider pieces for the mid-wall dado and the picture rail (from $12.76 for 1.8m length, Bunnings).
- Use a pencil and spirit level to mark out the size of your frames on the wall and ensure they are perfectly straight.
- Carefully measure your moulding (the longer side is the actual outer width you want your frame), then use a hand saw and mitre box to cut your frame edges at 45-degree angles so they join at the corners.
- Use wood glue to hold each piece of the frame level in place (use the spirit level), then use a hammer to nail each side to the wall. If your wall is already painted, pre-paint your cut frame pieces first and wait until they are thoroughly dry before using.
Turn a plain, boring wall into a gorgeous panelled feature with this simple — and inexpensive — decorating tip.
