~Custom Look-Bargain Basement Price~

December 16, 2009


Want to get the look of a custom frame job without paying for it? 
Pick up a frame from Ikea or Target and get a custom mat cut. 
My local art supply shop makes custom mat cuts for next to nothing. I had a black and white print of Prague that I wanted in a large frame with a lot of white space. I measured and had them make an off-center window. 
I love how it turned out. This is going in the dining room for now but after the holidays when the fireplace mantle is cleared of foliage I will prop it up there. 




Cost: $19.99 frame, $12.00 for the mat and the print was free!


This print is going to visit:
Show and Tell Wednesday at Blue Cricket Designs
