I used it for a project that was virtually free. Dug up an old frame that had lost it's glass and painted it white. (Love white frames because they make the color of the piece, and the wall color behind it pop.) Now I am thinking this one would have been better suited in a dark mahogany frame. I may have to repaint, but you get the idea. Used a couple sheets of scrapbook paper that I already had lying around to mat the music, tore and pasted the music, and THAT WAS IT!! I love a happy ending.
