Face lift for art through re-use

January 8, 2011

Sometimes the simplest changes make such a difference.  Take that piece of art you are ready to chuck  in order to free up the frame for another piece of art.  Wait!  Is there any part of that art you might re-use?

Give old art a new look
For this client, we simply placed a new piece of egyptian art over the top of the bird art, thereby covering what she didn’t like and adding something she resonated with, without having to purchase anything new!

Think before you chuck
Before you chuck the next piece of art, consider these options:

  1. Lay one piece over another.
  2. Keep the matte board and frame to use with another work.  You can even paint or cover with fabric, the matte board to use in another framing project!
