This distressed, shabby chic picture frame features a multi-layered, textured, sand colored finish on a smooth, slightly angled profile face. The outer edge of the profile features a weathered gray finish, with a small groove followed by a swan shape. The profile width is 2 ¼” and the rabbet depth is ½”.
This light colored frame represents the feeling of foraging for driftwood along a beach on a mystical foggy morning. The yellow tones of the ivory and tan finish provide a sort of sour tonality that represents hopeful light shining through the fog. In this sense, the color is neither warm nor cool; it is nuanced.
The finish also has the qualities of a faux finishing technique, so artwork and craft projects that are homemade might be a good fit with this picture frame. Of course, beach scenes and also imagery that highlights a weathered look would be appropriate matches, but you also might consider pairing this frame with textured, abstract paintings such as encaustic beeswax paintings.
Finally, consider this shabby chic picture frame if you are a business owner looking to make signage for a retail boutique or cafe. This frame could be used for menu boards, along with sandwich boards and window signage.
