Before and After! A Frame Change

Before and After! A Frame Change

This is a good example of how replacing your mom’s old 1980s gold frame can energize and renew your love for a favorite old print. We used a 2 1/2″ distressed grey wood frame, giving the picture a much more authentic feel. (We also went ahead and put a nice ticked oatmeal linen mat on it!) What do you think?
