The customer who brought in this old print had an old frame
that she had picked up at a garage sale.
It was re-finished and the re-sized.
This is the original frame that had been varnished.
Here it was lightly sanded and stained with Kona stain to enhance the detail.
The frame on this sign is painted in exterior paint.
Black on off white, you can order any color background.

There's no place like home.

My grand-daughter, Ruby, who will be 7 in a week has been taking art classes and this was her favourite piece and doesn't it look like a million dollars all dolled up in a frame. I am offering a special discount on framing children's art, a great idea for parents and grandparents wishing to encourage young people and help them build confidence in their artistic abilities.
Little hard to see the frame on this one. It is a two tone black and brown. Love the look with the black mat. Congratulations Chris!
Judith stitched this needlework over the winter. I think I did one cross-stitch that took me years. My contribution to this one was the mat. Beautiful work Judith.
December 3rd and 4th, 2010 we had our first show and sale. We had lots of fun and I'm looking forward to our next event early in May.
Wayne Gretzky poster framed with hockey sticks. This was a fun project but next time I'm wearing gloves. There is fibre-glass in those wooden sticks.
