It's a Frame-Up

Picture hosted by www.holdthatpic.com


Have a large rescued frame that you'd like to showcase? How about creating a shadow box to show off your plates and other collectibles. Build a backless box, approximately 4 inches deep, to fit the frame. Add desired shelves. Attach the box to the frame using metal L-brackets, one in each corner. Attach one side of each bracket to the box, the other to the fame - this allows the box to hang from the wall without stressing the frame.

Another great idea - I love that you're posting these. I'm guessing it's a way of keeping track of some great ideas yourself? I may do some variation of this in my craft space - it would be a good way to display a few of my favorite creations, but easy to switch out frequently.
