I am often at clients' homes arranging their pictures, so I have come across a lot of beautiful pieces of art. But many a time, the art is great but the frame not. A lot of pieces framed in the 70s and 80s are just bad. A new frame can do wonders for a piece of art you still love, and it can be as expensive, or inexpensive, as you like. Ikea frames are inexpensive and so simple they are great for many pieces.
Here's a great idea - paint! This is an unusual technique that adds an element of charm, but it can be equally nice just repainted a simple black.
Using old doilies in gorgeous black frames lets you use these artful treasures in a creative way.
Restoration may be in order to really enhance the beauty of the art.
Whatever you do, choose wisely and use a good framer for best results.
It makes a world of difference to how you view your art!
