Robert O'Donnell  After 28 years as a picture frame manufacturer, I am now on my own and brokering deals for framers and galleries w/ the best frame makers nationwide!

Unfinished Frame Friday: What do YOU think? The @wsgframes crew is collectively the most artistically open minded bunch of people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. When Nicole sent me this image of two basecoated samples, I replied with “?” She then asked “We’ve started ‘em so how would you finish ‘em?” Now, while I absolutely LOVE to be collaborative, I’m gonna pass this one forward. So to you dear followers, what finish would YOU like to see on these? The one rule though is that the base coat stays as is. Anddddd go!

Fun Frames Friday: It’s Playtime! The Madison Mayhem continues going full speed on the creative front. It’s near impossible to pin down the @wsgframes crew on a Top 10 or Top 20. No sooner do we generate a list when somebody says “What about this?” They’re driven by texture, patterns and colors and these newbies have all three! My personal fave? The neon yellow on turquoise striped beauty. Fun!

Throwback to a Designer Murdered. The Stanford White-designed collection of custom picture frames is (arguably) the most unique and original of the late-19th & early 20th Centuries! The prolific White, one of NY’s most sought after architects in his heyday, had branched out into interior design including wholly original picture and mirror frames! We must wonder what other jewels might’ve been created had he not been cut down by the jealous husband of Evelyn Nesbit... .

More Wednesday Wood: “If at first you DO succeed, do it again!” My friend, Marlowe, of @blackrabbet in Atlanta was so stoked when his wife’s mirror frame was done that he just kept on going! Since there were still plenty of hardwood planks left in his clean-up pile, Marlowe decided to gift the Mrs. with a matching double-opening photo frame! At his core, Marlowe has an ingrained love for carpentry and woodworking. And on pieces like this it shows!

Woodlands Wednesday. Looky what Marlowe’s been up to! My buddy of @blackrabbet fame is always thinking. He was cleaning his shop recently and came across an assortment of leftover hardwood boards. Being the creative that he is, Marlowe saw an opportunity to finally create that mirror for the house that his wife has been waiting on for three years! Not only is she happy but he wound up creating a whole new line for Black Rabbet! .

Two for Tuesday: Workmanship that’ll even impress the Seven Dwarfs! My friend Jeramie of @thefinishedcorner was mainly focused on Dutch Black until I pushed him towards the opposite end of the spectrum. His Black & 22k combination is stunning and I wanted to see how he’d handle Snow White. Needless to say, his White & 12k combo is pristine and definitely a showstopper in its own right! No bad apple here!

Magnificent Monday: Historical & Handmade. The artisans of @quattroframeworks strive for frame excellence. To this end, Sebastian and Hernan constantly encourage their frame makers to study the approach and methods of the old masters. And it all starts on the carving table. While too many competitors craft their “historical” frames out of resin(!), the Quattro crew prefers hand-carving each reproduction frame out of real wood! When you have a choice, shouldn’t you go REAL? .

Weekend Bonus: “Where’s Elsie?” I’m a huge fan of creative framing (yes, even when I’ve had nothing to do with it LOL). My friend, Susan, of @framesofmine, happens to be one of the most prolific framer-designers I know. And this is why her clients love her! She loves to make every job truly unique. With Susan though, her creative contribution is not always readily obvious. When I first saw this “Cow jumping over the moon“ piece, I thought “Oh that’s nice” ... and then I looked at her matting. Whoa. And all hand done. ‘nuf said. .

More Friday Fun: Going Gaga over Framing! Leave it to the creatives of @wsgframes to come up with a truly original frame for the Monster Queen! A client finally brought this 9yo Lady Gaga poster in for framing. Immediately, the designers were drawn to the diagonal color stripes. Leave it to the Madison Mayham minds though to extend them onto the frame but in reverse! Perfection! PS: With that hair she could be Sia’s sister, right?

Fun Frame Friday: “If you mess up, you might as well own it!” This is one of my new faves from the crazies of @wsgframes! I asked Nicole to send me pics of recent projects and this was one she couldn’t wait to share! We’ve all heard the adage ‘Measure Twice, Cut Once.” Well, somebody at WSG took this client poster to heart and threw that Framer’s Rule right out the window! The “lengths” some people go to for customer satisfaction... Total love! 💗 .

TBT to “Blue Ribbon” frames (in Pink & Yellow)! My friend Marlowe of @blackrabbet has seen a resurgence in his handmade Arts & Crafts frames. While he’s been hard at work on all sorts of Ombré frames (including a few for my customers!), he‘s noticed that his two Ribbon styles have also found renewed popularity! Even better (for him) is that clients have been modifying the Ribbon colors all over the place and it keeps him on his toes!

More Wednesday Wood: Flora & Fruit! The gang of @cedarowlframes are getting used to creative combos since they launched their “Dessert Menu” colored spline hardwood line. And the more they encourage clients, the more “specific” the requests become. Take these two recent projects for instance. Client A needed a Cherry float frame with “true French Lavender” splines while Client B ordered a Maple cap with “Blood Orange, NOT regular Orange” splines. I just know that the next request is going to be for “Splines in Espresso but the color if the coffee was made from African Arabica beans.” 😂
