Wow - awesome framing ideas, esp. the diptychs and triptychs. Thanks for the photos all -

GT, that looks so nice. It makes me wish I had picked it up.
I am really digging the symmetry of your framing. It really brings all the prints together. Any pictures of the whole room?

Thanks for the kind words. Here are a few pictures of the almost completed room. Still have a few more pieces to get on the walls.

Sa-weet!

Very nice room, basement right? I really like the use of the blue prints.
Will you take some shots when the framed pieces are up over the shuffleboard table?

So nice.

art is the only justification for pain :)

Yeah sure will. Still deciding between black frames or the same silver I used throughout the rest of the basement. I didn't know if the silver frames would be to much, being right under the silver light. Any suggestions???

Started building my shuffleboard table about a month ago. It's almost complete, just have to finish the playing surface.
Clem, shuffleboard is basically a bar game where pucks are slid down the table. Points are scored when the pucks are kept in designated zones. Pretty simple game, but an absolute blast to play.

Thanks for all of the kind words on my basement. I've been building it for almost 2 years and it has pretty much consumed all of my free time. So it's nice to finally be able to show it off.

OK, here is my first attempt at framing. I went to a local Michael's to get this done. It def. cost me more than I thought it would. I added several pics. I couldn't tell which one was best.

Black frame
dark blue velvet/suede fee -outer mat
medium bright blue - middle mat
black - third mat
floated between the 2nd and 3rd
plexiglass

GTMaus, nice place, nice framed Dangers. I wish I had a shuffleboard table in my basement. I am waiting for the mice to build one.

Angus, I love the frame job and I really like the velvewt mats from Michaels. I think the velvet mats make certain prints look really nice.

Thanks Matt. I own several prints but this is the 1st one that I framed in anything other than just a black frame with a simple white matte.
