Picture frames are definately one of my passions. I love what you can do with them in terms of framing options. I then love even more the idea to have a framed image that becomes a part of your every day. I think frames can enhance a dead space whether it be on a side board or on the wall. They can be more work than they are made out to be especially if you are hanging them and framing them yourself. It is a good idea to get help or too take your project one step at a time. There are some wonderful framers around Sydney but it is worth going to a few to get quotes as they can be very expensive. A more thrifty way is to source from markets and vintage/antique stores. There are some great stores on Parramatta Road which have old frames that you can renovate yourself.
