Post Salvation

Over the weekend I discovered these beautiful solid wood photo frames, and quickly snapped them up for New Leaves. They are made from recycled fence posts, and the workmanship is just superb. They are beautifully finished with natural oils, avoiding nasty chemicals and stains. This allows the beauty of the wood to really stand out, and its better for you, and the planet!

Each one is unique and there are various woods available. They come in all the standard photo sizes, and some not-so-standard sizes for your tricky images. They are supplied with a stand which allows vertical or horizontal display, and they are also equipped to hang on a wall, in either portrait or landscape style. Also, the backing on the glass section is acid-free professional framing quality card, so your photos won't deteriorate or become damaged.

My favourite ones hint at their utilitarian past, with old nail holes and railing joins still visible. Others are completely flawless. I am SO happy with the price too! Compared to some frames, crafted SO MUCH LESS responsibly, with new materials, in factories, imported from far away dragging, dragging heavily on the earth, these are amazingly reasonable, and so much more beautiful!

Prices start at $28, with the frame for a standard photo around $38-$40 depending on the width of the wood used. A very wide frame for a 6x4 (standard) photo would be around $60, and the stunning stunning wide frames for an 8x10 or A4 photo are between $90 and $99. So you can avoid IKEA, and get beautiful, solid, unique frames for $28, $99 or anywhere in between.

What a beautiful way to reduce waste, and create new from old! We could always post them to you if you don't live nearby!
