Have you ever wondered how to frame a canvas painting? We faced that very question when we bought a beautiful piece of canvas art from Jamaica.

After googling for ideas and realizing how expensive it would be to pay for a custom framing job (because these dimensions were NOWHERE NEAR standard), we decided to make our own.

Inspired by wooden soundboards, this frame took us a few tries to get right. Luckily for you, we documented the hilarious journey. 😂
