These are the finished frames.  Im not sure of the pictures orientation, because the artist forgot to sign it.  Sooo...Ill be taking it back to her to sign and reframing this piece!
I saw this pile of discarded fence.  Picture frames, and other things, jumped out at me.
The tiers are a bit difficult to see, but in person they turned out pretty nice.
I re-used the original rusty nails to anchor the pieces.

Someone I know from a nearby county's Habitat for Humanity asked me to build a picture frame for her watercolor, I believe it's to hang in a H for H office.  The challenge was to make it from reclaimed materials.  Lo & behold a few days later I ran across a pile of weathered fence pickets in my favorite fence company's trash pile.  A friend gave me handfuls of rusty old chain, some of which I'll attach.  The customer liked the first frame so much she bought the second!
