Frame makeover

I can never find frames I like, so I decided to do a little vintage makeover... I find it very soothing! Found this old frame (with glass) at Richmond Antiques and Curios (favourite antique shop).

It's pleasantly surprising what a bit of paint can do! I primed the frame, spraypainted it with a standard black paint, then got a piece of white mounting card for $4 at the local art suppliers and used a [very sharp] builder's craft knife to make nice little square windows in it. Then put my beautiful medium format graduation photos in (courtesy of Adrian) and there you have it! Nice little Saturday crafty job.
