If there’s one room in my apartment that’s barely gotten any love, it’s the bathroom. Recently, I decided to change that and give it a facelift by framing a few pieces of art that I’ve accumulated. Honestly, hanging framed art is one of the easiest ways to update a room, especially if you’re like me and tend to own more art than wallspace.
To give the boring ivory walls an update, I used a really awesome new service called Framebridge. They manufacture really high quality frames at super affordable prices. My favorite part? They framed my artwork for me. While selecting my perfect frames, I also requested special flat packaging. That arrived in 3-5 days, then I packaged up the pieces and shipped them back to Framebridge. The entire process was really straightforward and astoundingly simple.
This piece was pretty interesting to frame… see that wobbly, torn-paper looking edge? That’s called a deckled edge and I had this harebrained idea to mount it on top of black so that you can really see the edge. While ordering my art, it was incredibly easy to request this special ‘treatment’ from Framebridge. I added the info to a special request field while ordering and –voila– it showed up absolutely perfect.

The ordering process was also so simple that I decided to order one more frame for a piece I haven’t touched since 2007: my college diploma. I’m not exactly the type to flaunt my degree, but I did work my butt off so I figured it was high time I framed this important (and expensive) piece of paper! Me being me though… I opted for something unexpected: a black matte and the most gorgeous burl wood frame. The result is dramatic and I absolutely love it. Framebridge definitely helped me elevate a piece that feels somewhat ubiquitous and turn it into something that feels totally me.
