how to build a cheap frame for a painting

So I start buy buying molding from the hardware store

measure (on the inside of the inner rim) and cut 45deg angles with a Mitre Box
After cutting I tape the inside, and open the outside and put in woodglue. 

Then clamp while the glue dries.
wow. done. that was quick.


  1. Did you just staple the painting to the back of the frame? Thanks.

  2. not attached with anything just fits tight

  3. Hi thanks. Sorry I forgot i posted this question. So the painting has already been stretched when you fit it tight to the frame? Thanks again.


i'm not here right now but leave a message and i will get back to you as soon as possible.
