A custom mat and frame job can do wonders for a mediocre piece of wall art. Unfortunately, the cost can be prohibitive unless you start matting and framing your own collection. ApartmentTherapy posted a tutorial that will give you the confidence to at least give it a try. I've been thinking about preparing a mat cutting tutorial someday. Ha! Lucky for me, the work has been done. Here's what you need to get started:
2. Mat cutter (some suggest a razor blade, but if you read the comments, you may decide to invest in a mat cutter)
3. Mat cutting board (I think I could use the big mat I use for cutting fabric)
