His next step was to remove the painting from the current frame and cut it in half. Then he reframed the photo onto two individual frames that he quickly built. He put sticky sliders on the backside so it would slide across the wall.

I think this is a genius DIY project. Many people don’t like the eye sore of a big TV and would prefer more artwork. He said this entire project only cost him $130, plus the TV and artwork.
