How to: Make Easy Large Scale Wall Art with Custom Frames

created at: 08/27/2014

This post could be titled: "who doesn't want a giant dinosaur print in a frame you made yourself on your wall?" Cause, that's what's a-happening here, friends.   Chicago-couple Kim and Scott found a vintage book, blew up the images to 3x4' at their local office supply store for $7.00 each. To put everything together, they created these sleek, custom frames using super affordable 2x2" lumber.

This idea - large-scale toner print + custom frame - can produce infinite options for all kinds of rooms, walls, and spaces. The rabbet channel gives the whole thing a super polished look that makes the copy machine-style art look like something much more expensive.
