Weathered Chippy Wood Photo Backdrop

I always find it amusing how different people can be, don’t you?  For example, there are people like me who love rusty old pieces of metal, and other kinds of people who sell rusty old things at their next yard sale (I love those people!).  And there are people like me who think chippy weathered wood is one of the prettiest things on earth, but then there are other types of people who use that same wood for their next bonfire.

It takes all types to make the world go round, and if it wasn’t for people who don’t like rusty and weathered things, those of us who do wouldn’t be able to get our hands on nearly enough of it to suit us, so I’m grateful for them.

My mom has an old picnic table with the most wonderfully weathered chippy blue paint on it.  She no longer uses it as a picnic table, but when I spotted it, I had to take a photo of it, because I thought it would make a beautiful and easy backdrop for photos.

I got it printed as a 24 x 36″ engineering print, and attached it to a foam board with double-sided tape.

It’s lightweight, and easy to tuck behind the couch when I’m not using it.

I’m always looking for easy backgrounds for photos, so I have something other than the white walls in my house to use, and this was an easy and inexpensive one to make.

  1. So very gorgeous, Angie. I’m in love with the blue chippy paint wood backdrop. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You have such a great eye for these, Angie. Now I’m going to watch picnic tables for the same reason. Thank you so much for the download! It’s a beautiful backdrop with the touches of blue. Love it!

  3. That is a great idea! I love the blue paint. Thanks for the download too.

    What a cool idea! You could create numerous photo backgrounds and they would be so easy to store. They would even make beautiful framed prints.

  5. We have a big stack of wood and we have taken a close-up picture of the ends of the wood stacked, so it could be used for background also. Love your idea!!!

  6. Wow, it is amazing. You are such a doll to SHARE it for free with all of us. I am soooo ever grateful. I just love it. This would also be amazing for people who do digital scrapbooking or if you have a nice printer you can use it for cards, regular scrapbooking, wedding/party stuff and who knows what else. It is really awesome. Thanks! Jennifer

  7. Very pretty, Angie! Thanks for the download…I think it will be fun to play with in Photoshop or Picmonkey as a texture, too!

  8. Marlene Stephenson says

    I am with you about weathered wood and it certainly makes a great back ground. Just looks wonderful.

  9. I know they say to use white as a backdrop—-but somethings simply scream for a different type of backdrop. Like the yelloware bowl….so old and loved…needs a non-sterile backdrop. Great idea…I would be tempted to take the whole table top and use it somewhere. Thanks, Sandi

  10. I agree with Sandi…a weathered backdrop will always catch my eye first! Thank you for sharing your image and process for creating your fabulous backdrop!

  11. Angie, that piece of old wood is gorgeous! How generous of you to make it available to us. I have downloaded it and will eventually print it to use. Thank you so much!

  12. I’m embarrassed to say how heavy my 2″ x 2″ wood and fiberboard backdrop is to drag around. I have a lovely chippy barn wood engineered print on the front but foam board and double sided tape – H E L L O! This is a perfect backdrop for your pieces Angie – such a great idea.

  13. Sooooo smart, Angie! That is one great picture! And let’s hope that ‘table that is in desperate need of repair’ can land in your junk inclined hands one day… 🙂

  14. Angie, I just popped over to tell you how cool I thought your backdrop was, only to find you’re also sharing the download. What a double treat!! Thank goodness for those of them who don’t see the beauty in the old stuff!!
