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



I think it's time to update the blog!! I know what you are thinking, it's past time, so here we go.

We have pretty much wrapped up our Springs Shows. That's not really saying much, since we intentionally did not schedule many. I (Donnie) had back surgery in January, and we decided not to kill ourselves this Spring on shows. We are scheduling a few in the fall and are constantly taking custom orders.

If you do want to order or have any questions, please email us at We would love to create something new for you.
