Framing a Canvas

Rustic Frames to fit a Canvas.

Now it’s wedding season I’m getting asked alot to make up rustic picture frames that’ll hold a canvas.
These need a custom made frame as they are alot deeper than a standard picture frame, often as deep as 4 cm and usually don’t require any glass.
The wood I use for a canvas frame has to be chunky to accommodate the depth of the canvas plus a backboard to keep the canvas in place, they like all of my other picture frames come with their fixtures attached.
Please get in touch if you would like a quote, I’ll need the width and height of your canvas plus the depth (thickness) of it and some guidance on what wood you like the look of.
Our rustic furniture and decor showroom is open daily if you’re local to Romsey in Hampshire, you’re very welcome to pop over and get some inspiration if needed!

Rustic Interior Decor

These Driftwood style picture frames and rustic oak lamp base’s have been made for The Bluebell Inn in Emsworth.

The pub is opening three new guest rooms upstairs and my Interior Designer friend Neil Williams has restyled these spaces with an atmospheric coastal theme.

The Picture Frame’s (over 20 of them!) Have been made out of old sea groynes from Bournemouth’s beaches, the Oak lamp Base’s are rustic ancient beam sections that have been fitted with lampshades made by Jane Croft from the Isle Of Wight.

Neil Williams (the bureau of change) is about to open an Interiors space at The Packhouse in Farnham Surrey, there will be a selection of my Lamps and Hook Racks and Picture Frames for sale along with other treasures that Neil has bought or had made, all from Hampshire based artists.

Interior Design at The BlueBell Inn

I’ve been working with the very talented interior designer Neil Williams from The Bureau of Change who has been restyling three guest rooms at The Bluebell Inn at Emsworth.
Over the last year I’ve been busy supplying rustic picture frames, coat hook racks and little notice boards that’ll be sign written for the pub.
Neil has great vision for all sorts of interior and exterior spaces, he has an extensive design past and has taken on and transformed some amazing spaces.
I’ll share further images once the Bluebell is complete, it looks incredible already!

The Rustic Picture Frame Company

For 16 years or so I’ve been making my range of home decor products out of authentic reclaimed wood, I started with Rusticana Interiors and spent a number of years exhibiting at markets and county shows all over the south.
After 5 years of trading in a gazebo which was not ideal for my heavy and awkward to pack items I bought and converted my 7.5 tonne wooden horsebox lorry ‘Maude’,
Maude and I travelled all over the place attending street markets and shows, we had some amazing times although often problematic due to her size and age!
You’ll find images of Maude on my Instagram page if you look back over the posts, she was a fantastic setting for my work and I loved her very much, unfortunately though with more people buying online instead of on the high street or at events Maude had to be rehomed and my business went online.
I now have two websites which some of you may have noticed and wondered why!
Rusticana Interiors is my baby and it’s where I started, it’s how past customers find me, although it could do with a facelift it does its job.
The second website I have is The Rustic Picture Frame Company, It’s easier for customers to navigate and less fussy.
Both the websites do and sell the same thing.
Although I no longer attend the shows and markets I do have a showroom in Dunbridge Hampshire that I share with my partner Matt from www.blackstone-chalk.co.uk
It’s rammed full of Matt’s rustic furniture and all of my picture frames and home decor items, we are open daily so please do pop over if you’re in the area.

Reclaimed wood & me!

I’ve been working with reclaimed timber for the last 16 years, having spent over a decade restoring architectural items in a busy workshop I have gone on to run my Picture Frame business which incorporates my love of authentic reclaimed wood.

All of the timber I use for my Picture Frames and home decor products is old, It’s battered, has imperfections, and has signs of its past life, I leave it as it is mostly except for giving it a gentle clean and wax and treating it for any woodworm etc.

I make any size Picture Frame required, From tiny little photo frames to huge statement piece frames that are to hang in commercial spaces.

No two piece’s are ever the same, I do my best to replicate items that have sold or when multiples are needed, there will always be inconsistencies visible though which keep things slightly more interesting than everything looking the same.

If you would like some more info regarding a custom made picture frame or an item that is on my website then please get in touch, If you are in the Romsey area then we have a showroom which is open daily from 10 am, you are more than welcome to pop over and have a browse.
