How To Make Easy Wall Frame from Old Baking Pan
This old and scratched brownie pan was part of my husband’s aunt’s estate sale. She was a wonderfully gourmet chef. So it seems only fitting that a pan she most likely baked fancy desserts in for one of her many dinner parties be given new life in our home … as part of a gallery wall.
– Old baking pan
– Spray paint (I used this great metallic gold)
– Foam board or heavy cardboard
– Artwork or photo (I printed ours on high quality photo paper)
– 3M Super 77 Adhesive Spray
– Gorilla Glue
– Wall hook + nail
How To Quickly Repurpose Baking Pan Into a Wall Frame
Give your old baking pan a coat of spray paint. Or, leave the pan as is. Whatever look you’re going for. Let dry.
Since the inside of the pan will hold the piece of art, trace the inside shape onto a piece of foam board or heavy cardboard.
Print out your artwork or photo on high quality photo paper (or get professionally printed at your local photo center).
Adhere the print to the foam core with spray adhesive.

My foam core artwork fit snugly within the pan without any needed adhesive. If yours does not, give the bottom of the baking pan a spray of adhesive to secure the foam core so it will not fall out when hung.

Add a small amount of Gorilla Glue to the bottom of the baking pan.
Add a wall hook and let dry.
Once the glue has dried and hook is secure, hang on the wall and enjoy your eclectic wall art.
