I had fun using some of my amassed vintage frames. I cut apart a window and screen, made it into a frame, and used other vintage frame bits to fill it. One piece of glass has part of a letter from 1977 tucked behind, the other piece has paper leftovers. I like the frames empty, but it'd be just as easy to put two pictures into them.

piecesofthepast writes: I really love any project that elevates something so simple as backs of frames. They are always neglected, but I agree with greencolleen--the velvet is nice and should be shown off a bit! Great job...I love it! Posted: 4:17 pm on May 15th
