Straggler Sister wants nice photo frames for Christmas, both individual and bigger ones for multiple pics, presumably to populate with pics of her two littl'uns (toddler and relatively recent newborn)
Now when it comes to frames, I just get myself cheap clip frames (well, not really a frame is it, just glass held onto a bit of board) and then leave them in a box and never bother putting anything up.
So I am a bit behind. What sort of thing do you people, who work on making your houses look nice, go for in a picture frame? All suggestions welcome!
A picture behind plexiglass is very nice, but you can't really change the picture afterwards. Looks fantastic though, the contrast and colours come out really nice.
I also have some framed pictures laying around in a box btw, your story sound familiar.
If you go for a frame, avoid the very cheap ones, I bought some that had a rainbow-like scattering in the glass, it looked absolutely awful. Hard to see in the shop, but (depending on the picture) quite visible with a picture mounted.
Thanks all. Well the offerings in Next were dreadful, plastic frames and no glass, just a very thin plastic - kind of thing you might get for £6, not £25!
Wilko funnily enough has a nice variety, decently constructed wood and glass at fair prices, looking nice too. I will check out Sainsbury's. Again, surprised that Asda had some decent fare though theirs are a bit more "modernist" than the Wilko stuff.
Ikea looks OK too but I am not sure that I'll get to an Ikea on time.
In reply to Blue Straggler: Not sure where youre based or if they are near you. Wilkinsons, have some good looking ones that were dead cheap! (Look way more expensive than they were) £8 i paid about 6 months ago. Will get you a photo when i am home tomorrow if you want!
