When Mel and I went to S.F. to get the $5 clock the lady we purchased it from gave us these Asian picture frames with the bamboo edge blocks. I was soo elated when she gave them to me because I had a use for them in mind already. I wanted to put my pin-up girls in them and hang them in my Tiki room so I decided to knock that out today once I got back.
First thing I had to do was use some of my heavy drawing paper to make a matte to surround the pictures. I first drew it out making sure the spacing was correct. Once the marked areas were cut out I used some satin finish tan spray paint to color the matte so it looks more interesting. Then I mounted the pictures.
Here they are both mounted in the frames and man do they look good. Don’t ever walk away from a free picture or frame…you may not like the art but you may be able to re-purpose the frame to make it way cooler then it was. I am very happy with the results!
