About a month ago, my 5 year old daughter painted a landscape picture that I just love. I wanted to frame it and hang it in our living room. When I found the frame at the thrift store, I was a little leery. It was big, hideous, and big. And hideous. The thing that I liked was that it was like a 'real artwork' frame. I took a $7.99 chance and took it home. I was able to pry out the linen inner frame before I spray painted it. When it was dry, I put it all back together and hung it up. I love it!
P.S. What should I do with the original painting? Chuck it? Do something cool with it? It is oil on a thin wood board.
