I love this little trick and I've used it many times, since we have movie and music posters of all sizes throughout our house, particularly in family room!
My daughter is currently going through her obligatory Johnny Depp phase (well, I mean, who hasn't?) and her brother got her a really cool poster for her birthday.
On my Goodwill run this weekend, I found an awesome gray metal Ikea poster frame for $3.00! Since we always have posters hanging around, just looking for frames, I grabbed it!
Hung in place in my daughter's room, the poster looks so much richer with that "mat"!
Let's face it - poster frames can be expensive. Even the plastic frames up at my local K-Mart run anywhere from $10-$25 dollars, depending on size and quality. But a poster hung on a wall with pushpins looks sloppy and cheap.
