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!

Same frame as above, just different color combo

This isn't a new design, just one that we haven't posted yet. It's a 5x7 opening "dowel" frame

Ho! Ho! Ho! A little something to get ya in the Christmas spirit ;)

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.
