Gold Leaf Frame

Even after living in our apartment for nearly three years, I'm still constantly making adjustments and tweaks, which most recently manifested as an updated and upgraded gallery wall (which I'll share later this week). I purchased this gem and crystal illustration a few years back to support relief efforts in the Philippines following the typhoon and it had been sitting around, un-hung ever since. I felt that both the art and intended position on the gallery wall could benefit from a gold leaf frame, but didn't want to spend another year hunting down something that was the right size and finish, so I decided to make one myself. HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, etc are always great spots to find inexpensive frames in various sizes but in this case they didn't have one in gold. Easy enough fix, though. I used the same method as here and had a beautiful new frame in less than an hour (cat helper not required).
