During the month of January, we'll be posting photos and tips on DIY renovation projects from our readers. The first twenty submissions posted will receive an AT bib or T-shirt. Please click here for all the details.

Sue sent us this project which her husband recently tackled. It's a wonderful way to highlight a favorite photograph and especially good for filling up a large wall which can be intimidating.

Your location: Toronto, Canada

Project details: My husband did the project, not me... but its pretty simple aside from the math calculations. He just took a picture of the kids and enlarged it in Photoshop, then figured out all the spacing with the frames, borders, etc. and printed the enlarged copies on photo quality paper. The frames are simple IKEA frames so they were not expensive at all.

Best tip: Take the time and do your measurements! This goes for before you print, and before you hang them on the wall.

Thanks for sharing, Sue!

Readers: if you stink at figuring out measurments (like us), give The Rasterbator a try.
