One of a kind photo frames
Well, we have a bunch of one of a kind photo frames done. I’ve been painting, Al’s been staining, and we have over 25 frames done. We still have a few more to go, but we have a great variety, and we are quite pleased with the way they turned out.
As always, we get an idea, we think it’s a great idea, then that idea doesn’t work out for some reason. But plan B worked fine this time, and it all turned out OK.
Al started by building each frame. We stuck to 8 x 10, and 11 x 14 prints. The frame pictured above was embellished with some wood decorative pieces. We decided which photos to print, what colors the frames would be, or if they would just be stained.
I painted with chalk paint. This allowed me to get a two color look to match the photos. I bought about 8 different colors, so I was able to get a fun color variety and really compliment the photos.
This old door knob photo simply had to have some old skeleton keys attached to it.
I love how this vintage looking frame compliments this vintage style photo of the Tetons.
We also did some that were stained, or glazed to match the more natural aspect of some of the photos. The rocks add a fun touch and hopefully people will like them.
We hope that the color, and the uniqueness of what we have done will attract the buyers at the shows. One thing we have seen at shows is that people want something that is different, and catches their eye. Are these eye catching enough? We shall see.
I have gathered up some vintage things, and some other assorted stuff to decorate the booth with too. I want people to have a fun and relaxed feeling when they hit our space.
What do you guys think? I am open to ideas, critiques, any thoughts you have.
