Here are a few of my newest creations.  I am at peace while creating.  I especially love creating these pieces because I know they will someday be a beautiful addition to someone’s home-perhaps displaying their most treasured photography or art.  I would be honored to know that these became family heirlooms-something that will add beauty to you and yours’ family for years to come!  Thank you so much for viewing these!

The larger frame has a unique wood burned pattern burned by myself.  This frame will nicely display a matted 12×12 photo.  It is two-toned with alternating color wood.  There are naturally occuring knots and holes in the wood that are incorporated into the design.

The smaller frame is also made from rustic, upcycled wood, and will nicely fit a 5×7 un-matted photo, or a matted 4×6 photograph.

Both frames are unique, one-of-a-kind Christmas/Holiday gifts, or thoughtful housewarming gifts-or a nice piece for yourself!  These frames will look great in any decor from modern and edgy, to shabby chic-vintage, to traditional!  For more information please visit my shop on Etsy: to learn more and for pricing information!  Thank you so much for visiting my site!


About rusticstory

I am an active hiking mama and wife who loves creating beautiful things. I take landscape photography and my husband and I give old wood a new life by creating rustic frames. I have begun using a wood burning pen to create design and wording on the frames. I have a passion for creating new things and have recently taken to my husband's miter saw and router. I love the feeling of looking at a new frame creation, and kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier in life! I also love the thought of my high school shop teacher looking at these with disbelief in his eyes (shop class was not my first love!). My super supportive hubby helps me wrestle the sometimes warped pieces of wood into something absoutely beautiful! It is such a metaphor for life to Jesus wrestles the warped pieces of my life into something beautiful. The most poetic thing about this metaphor is this; the pieces of my life that I thought were un-salvagable were the exact pieces I had to go through to form the absoutely beautiful life I have now. It would not have happened any other way. My blog is a complation of experiences of love, life, photography, and frame making! All frames and photography are available for sale on Etsy at Please visit and enjoy!

  1. Nice work! I love the upcycled barn wood look! Good job with the design, too.

    • Thanks so much! Maybe an idea if one of your clients would like one of the beautiful photographs you took of them framed?? I will be getting a very sentimental nursery frame completed soon!
