I found the perfect frame at Hobby Lobby for $8.57. It was originally marked $85.70! What? $85.70 for a frame? That seemed crazy. Anyway, I bought it because it was perfect for my needs and was way under the $15 mark. It is a pretty simple frame. As you can see there is no glass and no back, but the wood is very nice quality. It is also a weird, non standard size – 9 1/4 – 14. These things didn’t matter to me though. I knew I could fix it up and would be perfect for what I pictured in my head.
While at Hobby Lobby I also picked up this thick, nice quality 16×20 art board for $4.49. I planned to cut it down to fit the frame and I wanted a little extra in case I screwed it up.
