Framing your diamond paintings does not always have to break the bank. It’s worth framing and displaying your sparkling masterpiece even if it means hunting for cost effective solutions.
With Dreamer Designs, our canvas dimensions fit standard frames which makes finding a ready made option easy. When working with diamond paintings from other sites, dimension can sometimes be tricky as vendors don’t always consider this intention.

Let’s check out how Brand Ambassador Nataliya framed her “Forest of Nisene Marks” painting:

The beautiful thing about second hand frames is that your finished piece ends up so much more unique and riddled with charm and character.
Yard sales and flea markets are definitely more common in the warm summer months however you can scour local second hand shops and vintage/antique stores to find the perfect frame to fit your design.
