Picture Frames From Lumberyard Materials
Picture frames, when purchased in art supply stores, can be very expensive.If you have a print to frame the cost may be more than it is worth.
Artists in many cases also struggle to obtain reasonably priced frames for their work.A good frame for an oil painting may easily cost $50 or more.
The solution to this problem is to build picture frames from common lumber and moldings obtained from building supply stores and lumberyards. Ordinary lumber in standard sizes can be combined with moldings to make excellent frames which can be painted in colors to complement the picture that is to be framed.
Frames made in this way are an excellent substitute for purchased frames. They can be matched exactly to the type of picture to be framed whether it be a print, painting or photography etc.
