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!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
