Everyone I know has at least one or two IKEA Ribba frames kicking around their homes; they're the plain, cheap workhorses of many a gallery wall around here. And you've no doubt noticed that the mat included with the Ribba isn't quite white. It's a creamy light yellow that doesn't exactly look amazing with the white frame. So I was floored to read this super easy tip that solves that problem in five seconds (and for free!).

Turn the mat over! Just look at the difference.

I read this tip over at Honey and Fitz and immediately did a face palm because...of course you should do that. Be warned, you will lose the beveled mat edge but, even as temporary solution, this looks SO much better.

Thanks for the tip, Honey and Fitz.
