Vintage brass frame gets a new life | Lovely Designs

I’ve had this beautiful brass frame sitting around my apartment for the better part of a year now. I loved it when I first set eyes on it (at a flea market, I think) but I never did anything with it. It didn’t come with any glass or anything to place an image in it and I didn’t really need another mirror around the house. So it has sat in my closet since I brought it home.

 

I was walking through the dollar store the other day and when I saw cork board there I knew exactly what the frame was meant to be. I wasted no time in putting together a classy bulletin board.

 

I laid my frame on top of the board and traced around the inside of the back. I tried to use an x-acto knife (my go-to blade) for cutting out the oval, but it really wasn’t up to the task. My box-cutter handled it no problem though.

 

Once that was done I did the same with the foam board that I bough from opus framing supplies. In a logical and sensible world, the two pieces would have nested neatly and perfectly in the frame since I had measured and cut them, using their new home as a stencil. Of course it didn’t work out the way. For some reason my cork board required a bit of whittling to fit…

Since these old frames are drilled and tapped then once my two boards were in, it was a simple matter of pushing finishing nails through the holes into the foam board.
