How to Update Your Space with Outdated Art

Screen shot 2013-07-03 at 10.00.00 PM

I found this fantastic poster of Velvet Underground album art drawn by Andy Warhol.  Andy Warhol is my favorite artist,  Velvet Underground is a terrific band, I love lips, and old coke glasses… how could I say no?

I wanted to frame it, but not with your typical college frame, I needed something more.

Since I am always on a budget I first sought out frames at Hobby Lobby. Ugly metal frames were going for about $20, I bought one and realized it was too small once I got home.

This is when I realized I was going about it all wrong, I needed a quality frame for my work.  So I went to the Goodwill with a tape measure and searched for art work in frames large enough to hold my Warhol print.  I wanted a metallic polished frame to fit my room, because my favorite colors (or lack of colors) to work with are black, white, and shiny.  Shopping for a frame is similar to shopping for a house: pay no attention to what is inside of it!  Only look at the BONES, the structure that is holding it together.  I came across this metallic and black number for $13 and bought it on the spot.

I look it home, took it apart, painted the matts black, and put it back together.  It took all day (granted I was photographing and video taping along the way) but I am so happy with the result!  Hard work pays off. And I barely paid a thing!
