Welcome to “Vintage is Now” Day 28. For the past month I have posted a framed vintage project every day.
For those who visit our shop, you will see this restored framed photo with the original, which has a crack across the faces. This was one of the our first photo restorations, and one of my favorites. These are my grandparents, most likely taken in the late 1910’s. There are only a few photographs of my grandparents together as my grandfather was killed in 1929 in an automobile accident. When I look at them I remember all that they have passed on to me. My grandfather was a successful businessman and my grandmother was a gracious and giving woman.
The design of this piece is elegant. I used two suede mats and beaded fillet between the mats and in the lip of the ornate frame. I truly wanted this to look like the most important photo in my collection. Although my grandparents are no longer with us, they are remembered every day. We are happy to help you with your vintage project. Just give us a call.
