I’ll give you a second to just ooh and ahh…aren’t these frames the coolest?!
I first saw these in another home and couldn’t stop drooling over them. To begin with, they’re HUGE and not just a typical 11×14 frame you’d find at most home goods stores. They’re handmade and the detail is so meticulous – even if you left them empty of photographs, they are already works of art on their own!
I have been following the maker of these gorgeous frames (they make amazing signs, too!) on Instagram, and had been mentally creating an order to place once we’re moved into the new house. Then, magically, Tara — one-half of the dynamic duo who creates these beauties — emailed, wanting to work together!
(Insert happy dance, here!)
Based in Ankeny, Iowa, Tara’s hubby, Matt, builds these awesome pieces and Tara works her magic on them with brushes, stencils, brads and more. Custom colors are available, and they come in a variety of sizes. And the amazing news?! She’s giving away one of her popular 24 x 27 sizes in “Graphite” (holds an 11 x 14 photo) with brad embellishments, shown here below (and yes that’s my phone next to it to show you just how big and beautiful these pieces are!).
Want a chance to put this stunner in your own home?? Here’s how to play!
