    I have a couple of hand-painted pieces of art that I want to frame and put up on the wall. Roughly about 2 metres by 1 meter and 2 metres by 0.5 meters. I dont want anything fancy, I just want these to be hung up, but even the cheapest of frames cost loads?! Any ideas what I can do? thanks!

    If the cheapest frame you can find is £200 then you must be looking around in Harrods or something. In normal shops like M&S, Next and Argos they sell frames for little as £5, you're not looking in the right places and if you are, you're not looking properly.

    Conclusively it's evident you're a troll, who makes threads about picture frames at midnight (apologise if you're not in the UK) however, you're still trolling.

    I'd go along to a framers and see how much they quote you - if you just want a plain frame then I doubt it'll cost anything near £200, even if the paintings are quite big.

    Yes, well done! that, sir, is exactly what I am. You do realise i small standard photo frame costs a minimum of £5? this is the 4x6in photos we're talking of. Now imagine this but about 20 times bigger in width and 10 times bigger in height. Considering it is a non standard size its hard to find a frame for! So getting a customised one is crazy expensive.. i was looking for something like £20 maybe, i really dont mind if the frame is very basic.. (all i care about is the painting and i want it up).

    Just found what you're looking for £15 including shipping (it's a wooden one on some American site and has good reviews).
