Reframing Antique Paintings

Have you inherited a painting whose frame is in bad shape? Or an old painting that has been put in a back closet and forgotten? If so you should seriously consider reframing the painting for a number of reasons.

Reframing the painting can help restore the painting to it’s former glory, and can increase the value as well. You may wonder about the type of frame you should choose and that’s simple, one that fits the painting. It doesn’t have to go back in the same type of frame it was in before if another frame looks better.

Bring the painting and old frame into our store and we will help you make the right choice for the painting. We have a large selection of styles and colors which will make finding the perfect frame easy.

Frame Your Family Photo for Christmas

It’s hard to believe that there are just 54 days left until Christmas. So, it’s not too early to frame your family photo. In fact, it’s better to get a head-start on it now. After all, we all know how busy everybody gets during the holiday season. Don’t save your family photo to the last minute when everyone is stressed out and short on time and patience. That never makes for a nice portrait.

You can go as simple as having everyone put on the festive colors of the season and take your photo at home in front of the fireplace. You can also hire a professional photographer to do it for you. Even better yet, hire a professional photographer to do a destination photograph. Great locations include the beach, a park or garden, or a location by any picturesque waterfront.

The theme parks will be decorating for the holidays soon. You could take your family photo there if you have season passes or are planning a family trip. You can also go to places that don’t require an admission price, like Downtown Disney or Universal’s City Walk.

Be festive in your picture. Use props. Maybe go with a costume theme, where mom and dad are Mr. and Mrs. Claus and all of the children are elves. Whatever you do, have fun and get everyone involved. After all, the holidays are about making memories and having fun with your family. It’s no fun if one person does all of the work, so assign roles to each family member to de-stress the whole process.

When you are happy with your photo, come and see us at Florida Frame House. We’ll frame your photo for you in artistic excellence. We look forward to seeing you real soon.
