Okay, so everyone knows about Ikea's 3pk of frames for like $2 right?  Well, if you dont, you should.  Anyway, I bought a bunch of them and had them sitting around for forever until I finally decided to do this with them...
(forgive that its still sitting on the floor in this shot)

So now my fiancee and I have a unique wall decoration in the precise colors of our livingroom and the precise way I like things (even though it was, technically, a gift for him!  Wink  Cheesy

I'm gonna feel dumb for asking this but, how'd you do it? Like did you just paint onto the glass and leave off the frame's back? Haha nevertheless, it's awesome  Smiley

Actually, thats precisely what I did.  I took off the frame's back, and I actually put behind it a print of a font enlarged that I wanted to use, so then I could just trace it as I painted it.

Then I just E600'd them together-I didnt even use wood glue-and it seems to be holding up just fine!!

Alrighty, thanks for the confirmation! Haha I've seen it a couple of other times and I'd love to try it myself so I just had to know  Smiley I surely wouldn't have thought of putting a copy behind to "trace" though, that's because I'm not too thoughtful, so I have to say good idea on that one!
