Tips for Resizing Thrift Store Picture Frames – ‘No Power Tools Needed!’ | #diy #TipsAndTricks
I have around 130 pieces of art installed in my apartment – my NYC apartment! A few dozen pieces are sculptures or even books/zines or 4D pieces like video files. But the bulk of my collection is 2D, and hangs on the walls. So I’ve put a lot of effort into framing things, and have also gone down the rabbit hole of wanting a baroque frame that simply costs too much money from a framer for the art it would frame, and had to find other ways to procure and make my own frames – I too have scoured thrift stores for nice-looking frames. And what’s nice about this video from Epbot is they don’t use any power tools to produce an awesome frame for their original piece of art:
Save money on custom framing by re-sizing cheap thrift store frames instead!
