Reclaimed wood picture frames
by Rusticana Interiors:
For the last 14 years I have been working with Reclaimed Wood making Rustic picture frames, mirrors and other home decor pieces.
I started my business after working in Reclamation for many years restoring architecture items, there was a lack of genuine products being custom made out of Reclaimed Timber.
The market is flooded with people using pallet wood and scaffold boards which aren't authentic, I wanted to do something using Antique Oak, Elm, Chestnut and Pine, proper wood!
I source my Wood from a number of contacts in the Reclamation business:
- Barns are being pulled down and restored, so often I’ll buy the frame work and cladding.
- Cottages will be having new floors so I’ll salvage the old boards.
- Farm buildings have great old Beams that are ancient and are being knocked down.
I'm always searching for the best and oldest wood I can find!
The majority of the wood I work with is Pit Sawn, meaning the whole tree would've been cut down and worked by hand. No mechanical devices around in those days! They stopped Pit Sawing around 1860, the tree's they used were of great age so when you buy a Picture Frame or Mirror from me you know the Oak or Elm is going to be around 400 years old.
I make Rustic Picture Frames and Mirrors at any size needed that get sent all over the UK, The Bespoke service I offer let's you decided exactly what style, Wood, and Size you want, if you need a mount or non reflective glass then that's what you get!
We have a showroom which my partner Matt from Blackstone chalk furniture shares with me, it is open daily and is full of Reclaimed Picture Frames, Mirrors and Interior pieces.
