So, you got this really cool picture that you want to frame, but all you can find are lame white picture frames…for ordinary people.
That frame will work for a picture of your mother in law, maybe…?
But if you got a reeeally cool pic of awesome aircraft, that you want to put up in your boycave…you need something else. Tape is a better option than that frame.
But, with a little effort, you can increase the coolness factor of that frame, by…a lot!
Buy some upholstery nails, pre-drill holes in the frame. Use a slightly undersize drillbit. Big enough so the frame won’t split, but small enough to give the nail some grab. Use some scotchbrite to rub up the finish of the frame and nails before priming it. Remember to clean with some rubbing alcohol before priming.
Paint in a suitable aviationish style.
I chose light grey and gull grey. It looks a bit dark in the picture, but it’s really nice in reality. I covered it with a couple of layers of matte laquer to get a unform sheen.
