  1. To separate the frame from the image, lay the image face down on a flat surface. Use the pliers to bend back the staples located behind the frame. Lift the cardboard and remove the image and clear the frame
  1. Next, wearing gloves, unroll the chicken wire and spread it across the back of the frame. Snip the wire to the size of the frame

Expert Tip: Before cutting the last part of the chicken wire, wear protective eyewear and staple the chicken wire. This keeps the wire from bouncing back at you.

  1. Use the staple gun to staple the chicken wire along all sides of the frame. While stapling, make sure to keep the wire taut

  1. Next, turn the frame over, spray paint in light mists, and use the dry rag to quickly to smooth out the paint before it dries. This helps the paint settle into the grooves, and give it an antique look

  1. Attach the photos with clothespins and arrange on the chicken wire as desired
