Wood Block Frames

Here are some picture frames I am working on using blocks of wood. Hope to have a bunch in store soon!

Ideas From Customers

I always get great ideas from customers on how they decorate their homes. One customer is doing a collage of empty picture frames to decorate a whole wall of her daughter's college apartment. She put together a beautiful group of frames and one neat tin piece and I painted them all green to pull together. I think it's going to look great!

This customer had seen a blogt about painting a nightstand with metallic silver and putting an antique glaze on top so I did this piece for her like that and I think it turned out great!
