I had two large pictures I no longer liked. I took scrap pieces of 1x3 and 1x2's and created a frame, after covering the inside with burlap. I thin took and blew up photos into black and white, mod podged them to the center frame, and added stained L molding. the cost $15.00 each frame to update two old pictures that would have been given to goodwill or trashed.

I love this, especially that touch of burlap matting. Moreover, I love that you reinvented something you owned to make it amazing.
