We framed this lamp yesterday for Catholic Health Initiatives along with some of their other artwork.

Love the thought put into the frame design for this vintage paper doll and doll clothes! This crafty custom framer created a “paper doll’s closet” from what looks to be a dowel rod and matboard opening. Too clever! Did you every play with paper dolls as a child? Bet you wished you saved them for a project like this!

We've talked about custom framing favorite family recipes before, but this idea never gets old to us. And this piece, featuring three recipes pulled together in one frame is lovely! You could bring together a favorite recipe of yours, your mom and your grandma, or just three random ones you love to look back on. What’s a recipe that’d be worth custom framing to you?!?

Is there a special cyclist in your life? If so, this is the gift for them - have one of their jerseys custom framed with a team photo. All that hard work should be commemorated in a beautiful piece of customized art! Visit your local custom framer for ideas, specific to the cyclist you’re creating this one-of-a-kind work of art for…

You may have seen this idea before, but for us, it never gets old. The beauty of christening gowns – especially old, family heirlooms – is apparent, and they should be treated as the works of art they are. That means, preservation and custom framing. This design features a little plaque at the bottom of the shadowbox, which could feature names of those who’ve worn the gown, who made it and when, or just about anything else you can think of!

Here’s an idea for the scout, or scout mom/dad in your life. Take some of the memorabilia – patches, badges, etc. and have them custom framed to create a beautiful keepsake they’ll enjoy for many years. After all, they worked so hard to earn them, shouldn't they enjoy the fruits of their labors?!?

Are you or maybe a loved one a book lover? Bring a favorite book into your local custom framer and work with them to create a personalized piece of art unlike any other!

Art should dictate the color palette of a space… Not the other way around. If you love the art, you’re sure to love the space it inspires! This strategy may even have you thinking outside of the box and discovering new tones and/or color combinations for you to love. Have fun with it, and with the custom frame design process, as you begin to work with your local custom framer on an ideal design for your pieces!

Does your home feature any hidden storage compartments – perhaps a linen closet, or even murphy bed? In many of these cases, these hidden home elements can be highlighted (and kept even more secret) with the addition of some strategically placed custom framed art! This hidden storage often acts as a fantastic backdrop for framed art. If you’re working with a murphy bed, or other storage, where the door opens down, work with your local custom framer on an appropriate hanging solution. We promise, they can help make it happen for you!

This is such a successful space, due in large part to this fantastic custom framed photograph. The art and frame design were kept relatively neutral for the space, as it is hung on a background of busy wallpaper. But, the art is still quite large, providing a nice visual relief against the busy design of the wall covering. A really nice solution!

Here’s a beautiful way to remember and celebrate a beloved furry member of your family… These pieces always draw out an emotional reaction from all who view them, so put them somewhere special. And consider adding other items, a favorite toy, paw print impression, etc. Frame By Frame can help with the layout and frame design and will treat these items with utmost respect.
