Hanging family pictures on the wall is the best way to make our house homier. In order to do so, we need family picture frames. Sometimes family pictures are also framed and placed in an office.
So, while we are working we will feel like in home. With the right frame, the picture will contribute to the decor of the room. Right now, photo frames are widely available in bookstores and craft stores.
They are available in many different colors and styles. So, you can match the frame with the room or office decor. Minimalist frame, for example, complements modern home or office design.
On the other hand, traditional antique wooden frame is more suitable for rustic homes. That is why a well-chosen photo frame is necessary to make a photo stand out and to make the room appealing.
There are some ideas of family picture frames. Those who are keen on vintage style can opt for unfinished antique frames or those made of reclaimed wood. Go to hardware in craft stores to buy such frames. These frames are called rustic frames because the wood is unfinished.
Actually you can make the frames on your own. Just prepare four strips of wood and hammer them together. Add glass window to the back. If you are afraid the frame will fall down and get broken, you can replace the glass with plastic. Some people, on the other hands, prefer something in more modern look.
For this contemporary style, display your photo in unframed glass. Sometimes chunky frame just distract the photo itself. Displaying it in unframed glass, therefore, will make the photo stands out.
It is true that family picture frames are sold with many different styles. But, you can also make your own photo frames. Buy unfinished frame and finish it yourself by painting the frame. If the picture is supposed to be frame in a child’s wall room, ask the child to paint the frame with you. It will be a nice mama and kid project.
Your child will love this idea. Handmade frame is more personal. You can decorate the frame using jewels, stones, or seashells. If you tend to buy the frame from store, there are things to consider. First measure the size of the photo so will get the right size of frame. Decide whether the photo frame will be later on placed on the table or attached to the wall.
