Double the Frames for a Dramatic Effect

Sgdish writes on Su Casa that she "found this adorable oil painting of a Yorkie on eBay, but it needed a little 'something something,' so I came up with adding an extra antique frame around the picture to give it more presence. Try it with a piece of art that just isn't big enough."

I love this idea, and I love that painting, too. Sgdish, by the way, is a proud owner of four Yorkies herself, so the painting has a lot of personal meaning, I'm sure.

Another thing I've seen with empty frames is just to hang them by themselves as wall art. I'm always looking for something new, different, and creative!

You know, it does look that way to me too. I went back to my wall, and it's straight...but I have an older digital camera and everything with straight lines looks distorted! Seems like it's time for a new camera with a better lens. I should consult geeksugar!

I like it! I don't mind things being a little of kilter. I do think though it might be worth it to get a decorative plate for the light switch.

not for me. i don't think anything needs to have a double frame.

At first I thought this was a really large painting and I was not okay - but noting the scale (see the lightswitch) and realizing that it is a really small installation I actually love how this looks.

I think it's a pretty neat idea, but I don't think it would work for everything.
