I made big chunky frames!

I loves pictures frames, but I love then big and chunky.

Ok, isn't that in the movie, Madagascar 2 with the big hippo guy?

Yeah, I watch too many kids movies.

Anywho, so it started with me wanting something up our staircase, but because we have this two story wall to deal with it can't be dinky.

So I bought these 8x10 frames at Hobby Lobby when they were half off.

How pitiful and dinky do they look?

They are totally lost in the wall of yellow. You look more at the wall then the pictures.

I added some 1x8 and some paint and glaze to the frames, to get this.

Makes much more of a statement, doesn't it?

But lets take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

We started with a plain ol' bland staircase.

We then added the trim, which you couldn't really see due to the bland wall color.

Then we painted the walls and added more trim.

And now we have humongous frames.

Next week I will show you how to make these bad boys.
