Recently i was asked to make grey Barn-wood mirror frames for hotel in Jamaica . After locating vendor for material i was shocked to learn at the huge price increase for this reclaimed wood . This job was on a two week turn around schedule so getting enough material and fair price quickly was not realistic .
i suggested i make Faux frames heavily distressed and client went with it . ..i think i got it right as others commented that those ‘old’ frames looked cool ..:)
