Let’s Frame It!
This past Valentine’s Day Ryan surprised me with a beautiful vintage Hermès scarf. After my initial FREAK OUT over the beautiful gift I started to brainstorm how I could display it. I couldn’t bare the thought of it folded up in my closet, or collecting dust on my vanity, so we decided the only suitable thing would be to frame it!
Framing a vintage scarf (and one that was extra special to me) seemed daunting. How would you even go about getting it done? Would the scarf get damaged in the process? How would it lay flat in the frame and not wrinkle? Clearly I was less than confident in the process…
After much research we got in touch with our friends over at Framebridge. If you haven’t used or heard about Framebridge, I am getting ready to change your life. Framebridge is a custom framing company where you can either upload a photo or artwork (which we did here!), send it in, or just purchase art online and have it framed and sent to your home hassle free and, friends, NO LIE, IT’S AMAZIIIIING.
After telling them all about our project Framebridge assured me that they could totally make my scarf framing dreams come true. So I boxed it up and shipped it out!
A few short weeks later this MASSIVE boxed showed up at our door step and it was all I could to to not tear it open like a kid on Christmas morning, but I wanted to make sure and get photos for you to see what it looked like!
We were both blown away by the quality and how well it was assembled! The scarf was in perfect condition and the frame only enhanced its beauty! I am so happy with the way the finished piece turned out. Honestly, besides Ryan and Lucy, it’s my favorite thing in our house.
Where to Buy an Hermès Scarf
Ryan bought this one from eBay, but he did tons of research and told me these are a few great places to find them. Do some shopping around because they can range in price!!
P.S. Like I mentioned on Monday, we are now going to re-paint our dining room, so as soon as we’ve got that whole situation taken care of, I’ll show you what it really looks like hanging up in all it’s Hermès glory!
