Bring New Life to Reclaimed Wood with Custom Frames
The works of art and personal photographs you’ve decided to protect and display prominently in your home must have some special significance for you. Why not house your prized items in custom frames made from materials with special significance as well? Reclaimed wood is a widely available and environmentally friendly resource that also possesses unique physical characteristics and histories. With your inspiration and a CustomMade artisan’s expertise, recycled materials can be found for custom photo frames and other pieces with a look and story that will complement the character of whatever you’re having framed.
The driftwood Adrianne’s Vintage Photos, LLC, uses for built-to-order driftwood picture frames comes from a 40-year old seawall in the Choctawhatchee Bay in Florida. Every frame is unique, with wormholes, nails, and natural oyster shells used as embellishments. If you’d like custom frames with an antiqued look, or for a piece with a nautical theme, or for someone who is fond of the sea, driftwood would make an excellent material.
Mahogany from a 1940s headboard is a perfect match for New Hampshire birch bark in this rustic symmetrical mahogany and birch bark frame by The Casey Company. The contrast of the smooth and clear mahogany with the rough white bark gives this frame an inviting texture that will surely bring viewers closer to your work of art or photo.
Reclaimed wood isn’t only for an antiqued or rustic look, however. Chair Built Custom Woodworking can create frames in custom sizes like this double picture frame from old hockey sticks that would be great gifts for hockey enthusiasts. If you’re a hardcore hockey fan, check out the furniture and home décor items that artisan Anthony Regole can also create from discarded hockey sticks.
