    Anyone ever build their own frame/display for memorabilia??

    A while back I got to spend some time with Mike Tyson.
    After years of butting heads, we finally agreed that Las
    Vegas is indeed big enough for both of us.
    Got a few things signed, including a WBC replica belt.

    (Against my wife's "recommendations") I wanted to
    display it in a cool way.
    I like the look of a lot of these custom frames you see
    online, but there always seems to be something I would
    have done differently.

    After a few weeks of messing around on MSPaint (I'm
    not technologically advanced enough for photoshop), I
    came up with a design that I liked, and began attempting
    to build my own.

    Etsy, Home Depot, and about $50 later. here is the
    almost-finished product. I still need to put it in an actual
    glass frame, but I think it turned out pretty good for
    someone who has always been more of a visionary than
    a carpenter.
