Simply Squared Designs offers a variety of custom built, distressed picture frames. Each frame is first imagined, then created. They are meticulously hand crafted and finished with a multi-step distressing process. We offer a variety of colors and finishing techniques. Donnie completed the Rocky Mountain Painting School where he learned a number of faux finishing and painting techniques. We apply these techniques to our products as well as refinishing furniture. Our customers are able to choose the size, color and finishing technique that they want. For more information or to place an order contact us at


We are in...

We are in Tupelo for Celebration Village and will be here until late Saturday night. I can't believe it, but we remembered to bring our camera and take some pics of our booth and some frames. We will be in Ocean Springs next weekend for Peter Anderson Festival. If you are in either of these areas, come by and see us!

This frame can be sold with or without the mat. It is a 14x16 opening with a fabric covered mat opening of 8x10 *photo by Allison Muirhead Photography*

Fabric covered bulletin board with ribbon

This is our booth at Celebration Village. It has already been a great show and is not over until Saturday evening!

16x20 bead board with trim

Big Girl Room...

We are currently working on a "big" girl room for our "little" girl. I found the cutest bedding at Pottery Barn Kids and wanted to create a frame that would coordinate with the bedding, without being too matchy matchy.
So, here's the frame...11x14 bead board "flip flop"
I pulled the blue, green and pink from the bedding.
We ended up taking this frame with us to Tupelo, Celebration is for sale until the room is complete! Maybe this is why I don't have any of our frames in our house! :)

And, here's the bedding.

I found these great sisters that do some amazing stuff! Check them out at ETSY... I also have their blog listed under friends and favorites. These letters are an example of their work and will go in the new room as well. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the little cute. They do all sorts of vintage arts and crafts. They are also gonna make me some shams to go with the bedding. I'm so excited! I am now addicted to etsy. We are thinking about creating a store through etsy, but simply just do not have the time right now. If we decide to do it, it will be after the first of the year when things slow down a bit (maybe :)). We will let ya know.


Here are a few pictures that Donnie took very quickly at A Day in the Country (Chapel of the Cross) Thanks to all who came out. It was GREAT!!! We look forward to seeing all of you at Canton as well!

8x10 opening with "double" whimsy trim
I feel like I say this each time we post pics of some new stuff, but I really think this is my favorite frame! I love it. Looks great anywhere in the house! It is quickly becoming one of our more popular frames! Also, check it out in the black and white version below.

this is also an 8x10 opening with "double" whimsy trim

The ever popular bead board frame. This frame is a 16x20 opening with LOTS of detail. There is "blocky" trim around the opening, "slats" of bead board, and it's hard to see in the pic, but the outer trim is painted white to match the trim in the center.

A 5x7 multi opening "totally whimsy" frame

Sorry, this isn't the greatest picture, but we wanted to give you an idea of one of our new designs. We will be doing lots more of these, and not only in the multi's, so we will have some more pics of this style soon!

We have lots of Christmas orders coming in each day, and we still have plenty of upcoming shows left this year. So, there is some time left to get your orders in for Christmas. We will post a date s0on, as to when we will no longer be taking orders for Christmas.
