Faux Museum frames made of mat board serendipitously doubles as earthquake proof frames! Not by intention. Light by nature, glass free, and made of durable heavy cardstock, they happen to be a perfect safety solution for over beds, kid’s rooms and hallways. They’re beautiful too.
I live in Southern California and we just had a super 7.2 rolling quake on Easter afternoon. The baby grand piano and three chandeliers vigorously swayed. Those darn quakes catch you by surprise every time. Almost a year ago we had a jolt in the 5 to 6 range that sent my hard frames flying off the walls rendering glass everywhere, but especially down the hall where we needed to exit.
The weather is beautiful but the quakes do keep us a little on edge. Truth told our building codes are such that damage is mostly cosmetic and the pain is really anticipating the bill to clean and replace.
Put two 8.5×11 frames over beds, or three 5×7, or one or two 16×20 poster and watch the room come alive. Try Faux Museum(R) frames over the beds, on a blank wall, spare rooms. Pull out the stack of post cards, posters, old photos. The tromp l’oeil is so exquisite we are welcomed into the J. Paul Getty Museum Store, North Carolina Museum of Art, Baltimore Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art and growing.
