What To Do With A Broken Picture Frame

Accidents happen. Pictures can fall off the walls. Glass can break when picture frames are transported from one place to the next no matter how careful you are. Even the highest-quality frames can chip or get scratched over time. When this is the case, don’t let your old or broken picture frame get lost in a closet, basement, attic or garage and your photos or artwork forgotten as you keep putting off a solution. As providers of professional framing services in Florida, we have some ideas about how to fix a broken picture frame.

How to Fix a Broken Picture Frame

When the glass is broken or a frame starts to look worn, it is time to replace it so that you can get that picture back up on your wall in a frame that you can be proud of. If the problems are minor like scratched plexiglass or broken glass, your frame can be fixed. You may be hesitant about discarding it, especially if the frame is older or if it’s a family picture frame that was passed down to you. At Rosenbaum Framing, we can replace the glass or plexiglass in your old picture frame so that you can get your frame back on the wall looking like new.

A Broken Picture Frame That’s Beyond Repair

We offer custom picture framing that can refresh the look of your art or photo and make the whole piece look like new. With hundreds of moulding options, we can create a frame that matches any décor.
