Here’s a quick saving money on framing project I just discovered.
We had our home painted by The Art of Michelle and I needed it framed. However, since I spent $200 on the watercolor I wanted to be a little more conservative on the framing.
I headed to Hobby Lobby and with a ready-made frame and matting, it would cost me $35. I wasn’t even that in love with the weathered frame, either, it sort of protruded out at the edges and I wanted something a bit flatter with less dimension.
Have you ever walked down the ready-made gallery frames? They have no glass or backs, just open frames. They were 50% off, and I found a perfect one, the matting was $2, and I picked up one of those cheap glass-clip floaty frames. You could slip the glass right in the spot and just nail it, I think it was about $5.
Total, $22. I know I didn’t save the world but I opened my eyes up to new solutions!
