Boxed Acrylic Framing

So, speaking of framing big pieces of art, I'm just about finished with the framing of those panels of hand-painted chinese wallpaper I talked about here. But I thought I'd share with you some pretty pictures from reader Eliza's house. She has really great taste. She's promised me a house tour sometime soon and I'm waiting for her email with bated breath. The photos I've seen so far are beautiful!


When I posted about acrylic framing last, Eliza emailed with these images. She mounted some Barbara Barry wallpaper with spray adhesive to thin particle board from Home Depot, which she had cut to size.


Eliza's framer, Nicole, from Rose City Framakers in Madison, NJ, was able to frame these panels of wallpaper in acrylic for a little over $100 each. That is a great price considering the size of these panels!


Nicole made a little frame inset on the back to help prevent bowing in the particle board and the acrylic.


Isn't this a pretty look? Makes me want to get my rear in gear and finish that wallpaper project! :) Can't wait to share.

I've had my eye on some pretty major graphic wallpaper, but have been a little chicken to commit to an entire wall. This gives me another option that will allow me to work in some of that pattern without a more permanent investment. Also will be a little easier on the pocket book!

Wow what a great idea! Looks awesome.

This is a little off topic...but where is that couch from??? I'm in the market for a new couch, and i love that one in the picture. Thanks!

Eliza'a pic of her room you have shown us so far reminds me of the design "method" that Muriel Brandolini uses.

I have always tried to figure out how Ms. Brandonlini does it.

It all flows wonderfully...I see that also in Eliza's pic of her room.

Nice.

Can I ask if you know where the rug is from in the top picture??
Also, love the idea for hanging large pictures! :)

I've been wanting to use acrylic in a way that's cooler than magnets. This is AWESOME. :) Pinning for later.

Thanks for the lovely comments (makes sense that Jenny, who is so lovely and positive, has such lovely and positive readers!)

To answer your questions:

Ashley, the sofa is by Baker. I got it 90% off as a floor sample, otherwise I couldn't have afforded it. :)

Mreffey, the rug is by Feizy, design #8297, and the color is "brown/light green"

Hope that helps.

Thanks again!
