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



Here are some frames we took to Handworks. We try to take new designs to each show, so our customers will be pleasantly surprised to see a new design! The frame above is a 11x14 opening. We call these our 3 in 1 frames. We actually build 3 frames then stack them on top of each other. Kind of time consuming, but we still like them!

Thanks for making Handworks a great show and we look forward to seeing you at Gingerbread House and Holly Days (Vicksburg) Dec 5 and 6.



Superman...that's Donnie's new name! Keeping up with all of the shows and filling orders, there's no other name for it. We had 5 home shows last can call me crazy, but it was a lot of fun! Thanks to all of the hostesses who throughout the year have opened your homes! I hope ya'll had as much fun as I did. I already have bookings for February and March. So, if you are interested, go ahead and inquire.

For those who have placed orders and have told us that your not in a hurry to get the frames, you just need them before Christmas, don't worry, we have not forgotten about ya! We have a whole list of ya'll and PROMISE to have them to ya before Christmas!

Just a reminder about Christmas orders...please, please, please, get them in as soon as possible. We are so sorry, but we will not be able to accept any Christmas orders after November 23.
We will try our best to stick to that deadline, but we are receiving orders daily and will soon be "filled up" So, please do not delay, go ahead and order today! HA! I didn't mean to make a cheesy rhyme ;)

We are preparing for Handworks this weekend. The dates are November 21-22. Come by and see us.
