i managed to picked up a broken mirror with an extremely ornate frame. i love these kind of frames. makes me giddy.
i removed the mirror and spray painted it grey. added some nice vintage looking fabric from garage sale for $1.
one of the corner is missing the cravings. it bugs me at first, but now I think it adds character.
total cost: $5.5 for a very nice piece in my hallway.
card board: $1
