Every time we go to a local restaurant here in Tallahassee Florida, I notice something. I always notice the really large canvas artwork they have on the wall and the very simple frame around it. I quickly determined a way to mimic the look with simple materials from the hardware store. Well, two weeks ago, I made a piece of artwork and thought, hey, I have the perfect frame idea for that! Take a look at how it all came together for under $10.
You'll need a way to cut the wood boards. A miter box will do nicely or you can use a miter saw. The brad nailer is not necessary but we used it to hold the boards in place while the glue dried. Clamps are handy to have although you could easily use painters tape to keep the boards in place while they dry.
I did a test of this frame a few weeks ago with the artwork I made. It turned out so well, that is why I wanted to share it with all of you. I really like that the frame doesn't add extra weight to the artwork and it's part of it, so it stays with the canvas making it easy to move or store. This is a great idea for kids' art, personal artwork, or starter prints.
