Our new house has an imposing exposed brick wall over a fireplace and mantle. To fill the big wall, we wanted to post enlarged pictures of our baby/family, but did not want to spend to money on a massive frame. Executing these plans turned out awesome. We blew up a photo, had a matte and glass cut to size, and then I built the craftsman frame to fit around everything. The framing probably would have been better/easier if I had a router to cut out an indent on the backside, but I ended up framing the photo/glass/matte inside some plain molding I nailed to the back.
