Happy Leap Day! I figured I should post today since I won't get to write another February 29th post for 4 years.
The last couple days I've been transforming photo mats with acrylic craft paint. I started with mats that came in frames that I picked up at garage sales and painted them to match my photos. It's simple but effective, and certainly a lot cheaper than buying custom mats. You can easily match cheap mats to team colors, wedding colors, school colors, or any other colors you want with just a couple coats of paint.
