Make Do March: Picture Revamp and a Link Up!

At the auction that I mentioned two days ago, I bought this really cool print...but it need a frame. Boo...
Then I remembered this frame that I had in my closet, that I had bought at a garage sale for $4. It had a wooded mat that framed out 4 pictures.

The picture that I bought at the auction fit in the frame without the mat, it had a white boarder around it...but it also showed the edges--about an eighth of an inch, and looked bad. Wah waah wah:(

So I checked to see if the picture would work in the frame if I cut the "t" out of the mat...and it fit!
Armed with an exact knife I was off...
and I cut out the "t"! But the mat was made out of particle board and showed the imperfections and I didn't like the look of it...it was messy.

What did I do? I took some sandpaper to it. I distressed it a bit!

I put the mat and picture into the frame...and it turned out great! The distressing actually goes along with the look of the print. 
What do you think?
