This is only an idea,that I tried and my not work for everyone.
I have some art that has to be framed for shows that are soon approaching. I like to frame my art it always looks better with a nice frame. The cost is unfortunately too expensive for me to go to a proper framing place. So I opted to go to Hobby Lobby and buy pr-made frames. With the Canadian and American measurements being so different I had to pick up 3 frames larger than my canvas, my husband cut them down to size in a matter of a day. Glued, hammered and stapled them, some minor nicks and cuts that can be fixed up with paint and putty and I'm off to the races with frames that look professional with out the cost. If my husband didn't have the proper tools I doubt I could have done this, with all said and done I saved my self about 190.00
