Second Line Frames: Salvaged History

These wooden frames from Second Line Frames are beautiful examples of architectural salvage put to good use. What's even nicer is a portion of each sale goes to assist in the rehabilitation of neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Katrina, so you're not only beautifying your home, but only preserving the memory of a city forever changed. The whole selection under the jump...

We get the wood by driving up and down the streets of New Orleans. All the wood we collect has either already been put into piles for trash pickup or we get permission from a family currently doing renovations. They have always been more than happy to give us the wood, and often, would like us to haul away more than we can carry.

One thing we are committed to doing sometime in the future is to give a frame back to the original person we got the wood from so they can have a preserved piece of their old house. That would be a fantastic moment!

Frames can be purchased their etsy store here.
