Floater Frames!  Great Little Parisian Oils

Floater Frames! Great Little Parisian Oils

We had a customer bring these little oils in that they bought in Paris. We were enjoying the sides of the canvasses with their quaint tacks holding the canvas so we decided to highlight that feature in the framing. We used these black floater frames and offset them enough so you can see the tacks. Neat! Each one only measures about 7″ x 9″. Remember, if you are looking for a Columbia frame shop give us a call!
