Step 1: Cruise Half.com for a few coffee-table sized art books, purchase at an extreme discount, and don't mind the condition -- you'll be cutting this up.
Step 2: Go to Ikea and get Ribba frames, black or white, any size you think is appropriate.
Step 3: Order custom mats for the Ribba frame, to the exact measurements of the piece in the book you want to frame. Custom mats are inexpensive, a nice frame store would run you about $20 for a custom mat, you could find them online for less though.
Step 4: Assemble, and repeat with as many pieces from the book you like, and you have the buddings of a gallery wall.
Half.com, ordered Lillian Bassman, Women by Debroah Solomon. Stunning pictures of women in stunning outfits, all black and white. $21.63.
Got two Ribba frames, $14.99.
Order custom mats from a shop in Brooklyn, for $20 a piece. I think I could have gotten them for less online, which I'll do next time.
And it looks amazing...
And it is time to put some amazing on the bathroom walls...
Who says you shouldn't put real art in the bathroom? Not I!
We're going to do this for all the galleries in the apartment, for more on what we're framing see this post.
