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


Kelly, a loyal customer!

Custom order for Kelly
"Swoop" frame with bead board and rope trim
Kelly was one of our very first customers years ago! We have built several frames for her, over the years. We always enjoy working with her and were happy to create this combo of frames for her!
This frame was completed several months ago, but I'm just now getting around to getting a pic from Kelly and posting it! She has the big "Swoop" frame in the center the two, 5x7 bead board with rope trim, on each side.


new tags, new friend

We have a new friend...and she's AMAZING! She is super crafty and is now making our tags for our frames. One less thing I have to take the time to do, plus hers are much cuter! Her name is Shauna Rogers of Lemon Drop Studio She is so easy to work with and seems to be super organized (I admire anyone that is so organized, it seems so far fetched for me!)
Thanks Shauna for featuring us in a blog post and we are so excited to have found you!
You can find Shauna and her fun paper goods (and more) here...Lemon Drop Studio
go, check out all of her goodies and you can thank me later ;)
Here's a sneak peek at some of the fun...

Hi folks...we're home from Cottontail's Village in Birmingham and appreciate all of you who stopped by our booth. We had a great time and enjoyed meeting all of you.
We are staying busy with our spring shows and home shows. Between the two, we do not have a free weekend until June! So, thanks to all of our "fans" who keep us busy and on the go! We really enjoy traveling around and meeting lots off fun people!
