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


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.
