Well...this has been a DIY on my list for over a year. We went to Jamaica last summer and ended up buying a painting. It was pretty large and we had to take the canvas off the frame in order to get it home safely. I have had this painting rolled up in my office for over a year! I know...pathetic!
Me and the honey decided to remedy this problem. We went to lowe's and bought some wood and "L" brackets and Jared and I built a frame. I watched the below tutorial on how to stretch a canvas. This was a great lesson and I'm glad I have learned this skill. I thought I would shared some of the pictures of our little adventure.
Here is the UTUBE tutorial I used
|Here is the picture...you can see the canvas is no attached to anything and the edges are white|
|Here is Jared screwing in the "L" bracket to support the corners and make is strong|
|Here is a picture of the completed frame..and my foot apparently|
|This is the final product after we used the staple gun just like the tutorial|
I'm so glad this project is done! I don't think I will worry next time the Hubby wants to buy art on vacation. Besides building the frame...stretching the canvas was easy peezy.
