Six Designs for a Western Picture Frame---Posted 8/20/09
|Western decor is coming back in style! Although the old west look never really went out, many people began pulling away to try other styles but now with so many new designs, we see many people incorporating western or rustic items back into the home. The great thing about this style is that you can go all out with a complete room transformation or simply add a few items to give the room a slight feel of the old west. One way to accomplish both is by displaying photos in a western picture frame.|
Because you have so many options for an old west picture frame, we wanted to provide you with a list of six designs that could be used for men and for women. Each of these frames is designed to hold photos in varying sizes but the materials and designs are unique.
For the hard-to-buy-for man, the one that likes to put favorite photos out for everyone to see but has no understanding of style, we recommend the cowboy boot frame. The frame itself is in the shape of a cowboy boot, adding a touch of whimsy while keeping to the western theme. Typically, this type of western picture frame is made from resin, which is durable and strong but also versatile. Some of the better designs have detailing that look like tooled leather stitching and silver spurs, things that would be found on real cowboy boots.
For a teenager, someone that loves western flavor but still appreciates being a girl, a western picture frame in the shape of an old west purse would be ideal. Making this even better, you could choose the frame in various colors to include pink and purple. One style has a vinyl strap, simulated tooled leather, belt buckles that go across the top, and a twisted rope of metal that outlines the entire frame.
For a classier look, a western picture frame made from poly resin and designed with a large medallion of silver would provide embellishment on the top, featuring a longhorn in the center. With the silver accents molded around this western picture frame, you would get a unique 3D effect that creates a level of sophistication.
A western picture frame made from authentic barn wood is always an exceptional addition. Photos could be displayed in a single frame or one designed to hold two, three, or four different photos. Frames using genuine barn wood offer a warm and cozy feel that is commonly found in homes with rustic or old west charm.
A common component seen throughout rooms with a western flair is antlers. Today, you can find candleholders, chandeliers, and even picture frames that use real antlers. Therefore, a western picture frame made from wood, leather, and antlers would be amazing.
For the cowgirl who loves being a barrel racer, a western picture frame designed from black leather and belt buckles made from rhinestones on the side would allow her to show off some of her action photos while still being very feminine.
