Hi friends! It's not super typical that I get asked repeatedly for a tutorial， but after sharing my post on how I made these DIY photo mats for Attley's room， I started getting tons of questions about where I purchased the frames. When I responded explaining that I modified some store-bought frames to create the look， I got tons of requests for the tutorial ASAP. Sopersonalized gifts for him for birthday， here is it! I got to it as quickly as I could. Read on to learn how to make these semi-DIY gold frames for yourself.

1) Remove the glass and back insert from your square plastic frames. YES， the frames are plastic， but they will look like gold metal beauties when you are done ：)
2) Squeeze a small amount ofRub N' Buff in Antique Goldonto a paper towel and rub it on the black， plastic frame. It is a wax product and little bit goes a long way.
Be sure you get complete coverage， and don't forget to fully coat the thin profile that will show on the front.
You don't have to coat the inside of the frame that will be covered. Work smarter， not harder ；)
3) The product dries pretty much instantly and it's sooooo much more durable than spray paint. So， you can insert the backer， and your photo mat and photo pretty much immediately. Then replace the glass (which just pops into place) and hang them up!
We purchased the 8 frames for $66 and used less than one tube of theRub N' Buff in Antique Gold(which costs around $7.00). Then we made the photo mats for about $.50 each. So our total cost per frame was less than $10. I call that a HUGE win.
I made these bright pink DIY photo mats for our frames， but with a white photo mat， they would be pretty indistinguishable from these MUCH more expensive options.

Most play mats for babies include a fabric base with an overhead “gym” attached (and are commonly known as play or activity gyms), but for those looking for just a mat, Fatherly deputy editor Matt Berical recommends this extra-large mat from Tiny Love that features built-in activities and a variety of textures. “It’s a large, quilted mat that works as a portable play space for kids,” he says. “It’s made to help kids move around and interact, and it folds up really small so it’s easy for parents to pack in a bag whenever they go somewhere. It’s also machine washable.”
