This gray-washed, rustic wood picture frame features an overall flat profile shape that has been distressed to reveal the natural relief ridges of worn, rough-cut wood grain texture. The profile width is 2 ¼”, and the rabbet depth is ½”, making this frame most ideal for items less that ½” thick.
The look and feel of this rustic wood picture frame is rather interesting, given the historical relationship of this style with the industrial days of old, when furniture and architecture was utilitarian, and served a plain and simple purpose of housing mountain folks in rough-sawn cabins, and trading merchandise.
This rustic wood picture frame is especially ideal for interior design settings that highlight the pioneering days, such as lodges, cabins, and mountain-town coffee shops that oftentimes blend styles in a nostalgic and eclectic fashion. In fact, this rustic wood picture frame would be ideal to frame menu boards, A-frame sandwich boards, and chalkboards in a cafe or coffee shop setting. Additional themes that would pair with this rustic wood picture frame with a gray wash include nature scenes and wildlife art, from renderings of Wolves and coyotes, to desert vermin and the mythological jackaloupe!
