Get Creative with Framing

Posted on 22 February 2017

Custom framing is an art form in and of itself, taking an eye for design, an experienced hand, and a vision for the finished product. It takes the quality up a notch from mass produced ready-made frames, and who doesn’t love personalized service and a unique product custom made just for you? But what many people don’t realize is that framing isn’t just for photos and artworks on paper and art isn’t the only thing that deserves to be displayed on our walls.

There are so many insanely creative ways to use framing to your advantage. Athletic uniforms, historical documents, found objects, and more – we’ve seen it all! Check out some of these fun ideas and get creative with those frameable objects hiding in your storage closet.

 

HEIRLOOMS

Love letters, your grandmothers recipes, even jewelry can be framed! We love the idea of framing old recipe cards for display in the kitchen. Framing those sentimental family heirlooms is such a beautiful way to honor our loved ones, preserve the objects, and put them on display rather than having them collect dust in the attic.

 

TEXTILES

Do you have a vintage tapestry, section of leather or fur, or even a work of art on an uncommon canvas like tree bark paper? These often hard-to-display pieces just need a little custom framing TLC! You’ll have something no one else in the world has, and before you know if your space will transform into the curated gallery of a traveling art collector!

 

FOUND OBJECTS

If you have an eye for small objects from antique malls, estate sales, or even sentimental items from your own life like things that belonged to your loved ones that you can’t use, but you don’t want to get rid of. Put them on display! A gallery wall of antiques in custom shadowboxes is a great way to display these things that we hold close to our hearts.

 

DISPLAY YOUR PERSONALITY

Your space should reflect you! Most people have something they hold onto, but aren’t sure what to do with it. If you’re a music lover, we know you have concert tickets in a box under your bed, mint condition vinyl albums hiding on a shelf, or an autographed tee shirt hanging in the closet, too precious to actually wear – put them on display and your space will exude your personality!

 

Maybe you’re even an artist yourself – consider framing an old palette or series of paintbrushes! Or if your creative outlet isn’t exactly painting with a palette and brush, framing woodworking tools, architectural drawings, or pressed flowers from the garden will make your space uniquely you.
