Fun Photo Framing

Personal photos are a great, easy way to make a space your own. I love to have photos around, and I'm constantly searching for ways to add a bit of originality to them without spending a ton of money. Purchasing a simple inexpensive frame, and replacing its matting is a great way to personalize your photo collection. Mat your photos with a map, old book page, or newspaper cutting for a classic, vintage look. Choose a map that relates to the photo for an extra personal touch. Or for a more feminine feel, create a mat that's covered in lace (so pretty!).

For a simpler style, choose matting in a solid color that coordinates with the photo. Using burlap is a great way to incorporate texture through a single color. Mix and match different types of matting within a collection of frames for a unique, eclectic look. Or keep it subtle by matting all of your frames with the same color or material.

Gather your matting materials from a craft store, or swing by a local second-hand shop for one of a kind items - you never know what you'll come across!
