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


the deadline has come and gone

we are not accepting anymore orders at this time, we would not have time to fill them before Christmas. If you wanna place an order and do not need it in time for Christmas, feel free!
This does not apply to home shows that fall between now and Christmas



Hi everyone! I'll start with the same thing I always start with...apologizing for being a horrible blogger. It's just not me, I'm not organized and really just dont have the time right now. That's my excuse for now.
What Donnie's been up to...Monday-Friday 8-5 work (the real job) 6-11:00 work (frames)

Weekends 8:00am-10:00 or 11:00pm work on frames

Me...Monday-Friday 24 hours a day work the best job in the whole world, taking care of our little one and working on frames whenever she is entertained by the mud puddles in the driveway
So, to say the least, our lives are consumed by FRAMES right now...this time of the year is incredibly busy for us...all of this to say, if you have emailed or called and have not rec'd a response yet, don't give up, one of us will get to you!
We have lots of orders waiting to be filled, time frame for orders right now is 6-8 weeks, as much as we would love to get it done, it will probably not be completed before then.
We have 2 big shows left, one this week and one next week, then we can focus on the orders.
We have the best families anyone could ever dream of, and none of this would be possible without them. All of them! My sweet mom helps do anything we ask, keeping our little one and helping with frames, my dad cuts some for us, donnie's brother and his wife have traveled a lot for us this fall doing the shows for us and his parents help watch the little one. We could never tell you how much we appreciate all of you and your willingness to help.

There are no more dates available for homeshows before Christmas. I am already booking for the spring, please let me know now if you are interested, dates fill up fast.

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this time of year :)
Remember the last day to get your orders in before Christmas is soon!
