I've been carrying the idea to build a roombox to honor my grandma for a long time. Didn't know what to start with till one day I saw this old looking frame on sale at Michael's. Nothing could be better for the frame for my new roombox. I didn't do anything to it, didn't sand, didn't stain, didn't paint. I like the way it looks: old, little bit rusty, at the same time comfortable and cozy, like old toys that you haven't been playing with for a long, long time.
