With that good photo I headed over to the Tiny Prints website and ordered a 16x20 canvas. I was a little bit nervous about the quality of the canvas. I'd never ordered a canvas before and I knew that if the canvas wasn't high quality my photo would look terrible. My worry was unnecessary. When the canvas landed on my doorstep I was so
Picture Frame and eliminate the building process in this project.) I wanted to have a 4" 'mat' around the canvas print, so first he made a flat frame with outside dimensions of 27-1/4" x 31-1/4" using 1" thick x 1-5/8" wide lengths of wood. Once this was built, he attached 4-1/4" crown molding to the flat frame, leaving 1" of the flat frame showing on all sides. The back of the frame was made from a piece of 1/4" thick material (either MDF or Plywood will work). This piece was temporarily nailed into a 1/4" groove cut into the backside of the flat frame to hold the entire frame square while the glue dried. Once this was done, he puttied the holes and joints and then finish sanded the whole thing.
Once he was finished building the frame he also painted it for me (he's the BEST! I don't know what I would do without him!). He painted it a dark chocolate brown first
facebook and instagram friends to help me make the choice. I thought about using both fabrics, but in the end I decided to finish the project using just one fabric.
We adhered the fabric to the back of the frame with spray adhesive and then adhered the back board to the back of the frame.
And with the the project was finished...I LOVE love LOVE it! It makes me smile every time I walk into my living room.
