~new frames made with reclaimed wood~

 If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know by now that I love frames, and I love to make them out of reclaimed wood. 
Sometimes it is hard to find this great old chippy painted wood.
So, when I do find it, I scoop it up and stash it in my workroom.
 Yesterday I got it all out and made several frames.
I am keeping a few, but have taken the rest into Ruffles and Rust Square in Snohomish WA. 
 I love the detail in this particular frame with all the chippy creamy paint 
and the dark wood showing through. 
I made them all with standard size openings.
{4x6, 5x7, & 8x10}
 It's really rare I find a cool colored piece of wood. 
I LOVE this jadeite green color, and mixed with the other colors, it just screams country cottage!
 I like to mix and match these on a wall to form a nice collage grouping.
I especially like them filled with black and whites, or sepia toned photos.
Of course, if all you have is colored photos, one quick trip to the copy center will 
change that for about 10 cents! 
Head on over to Ruffles and Rust soon for the best selection!
Also, just a reminder that there is only a couple more days to take advantage of my 3 month for $50 advertising offer! Email me at:
if you are interested!
Going on now through the end of July!

Love the idea of using the reclaimed wood. My favorite is the first one with the crackle finish. Shannon

Those frames are a great way to frame a smaller picture. It just draws your eye right into it.

The Mr. made some frames out of our old fence. Then framed a coyboy sketch that my son made way back in High School. He did this ALL ON HIS OWN! I think he got the idea when we visited an antique store. It was a really nice surprise for me.

Imagine my surprise when I sit down at red robin and your children are sitting at the next table. Did a double take and now I'm sure they think I'm nuts. :)

Carly said...

OH, wow that is such an awesome idea! You are so creative! And you're right, they are so beautiful in part because of the detail. Perfectly uneven.

I'm always trying to distress wood on my blog, but the problem is that you always KNOW that you distressed it. There's less history to the imperfections in the wood because you KNOW that YOU are the one who purposely hit it with a nail, a hammer or sanded it down.

Thanks so much! I'm a new visitor!
