Frame galleries and collage frames seem to be in every decorating magazine and home store. I thought I'd try to make my own for a fraction of the cost. It started with a trip to Goodwill to find wood frames that I could arrange into a collage. I removed the glass and backing from each frame and gave everything a good cleaning. The wood frames were sanded and painted with a fresh coat of black paint before

    What kind of glue did you use to hold the frames together? I didn't see a picture of it or it mentioned in your post. Thanks - love this idea!!!
