As a housewarming project (& for ongoing development) Jenn came up with the brilliant idea of getting friends to paint small squares for us. In order for this to work, I figure that we need a place to put (& remove) incomplete tiles. Since, you know, this will be a work in progress but also needs to look good at the same time.
I searched the home depot page for some sort of flat-bar stock that would both look good and be functional. I came up with this thing: Home Depot - H. Paulin Flat Bar. The only problem is that it costs about $3/ft ... total cost of this art deco would be upwards of $120.
So we'll see. I was willing to spend up to $50 on this. Maybe I'll find a different framing material that's not so expensive.
