Over the years my boyfriend has collected a whole bunch of old picture frames. I love them! They are all different shapes and sizes and colours, the only thing they have in common is that none of them have any glass.
However, during a recent trip to Ikea, I came up with the idea of using inexpensive poster frame parts to bring new life to our old frames.
I measured my frame, then cut the cardboard and plastic from the poster frame to size using an x acto knife. It’s key to use a ruler when cutting to keep lines straight. Also, be sure to score the plastic layer a couple times before attempting to cut through it, it’s pretty delicate and might crack if you’re not careful.
So glad to finally make use of the frames and to put some of Mike’s life drawings on display! One of the benefits of using the plastic instead of glass is that it’s light weight!
