Casa Quickie: Big Frames For Diminutive Art

If you're still saving your pennies for some large art pieces, but you want to make a dramatic splash in your home right now, consider placing a smaller photo or painting (or, as in this case, a silhouette) in a larger frame. You can find wooden frames at flea markets or yard sales, and a coat of paint will transform a dated frame into a piece that pops on your wall. And given the intentional use of small art/big frame, you don't have to worry about matting or glass. Nice, huh?

Oh! I love this idea. I have a silhouette that I've been wanting to reframe. I think this would be a fun way to do it.
