Art collectors protect their pictures the same way that crime bosses discipline their children—by having them framed. Guard your pictures before they take a fall with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of custom framing, prints, and framed art at Picture This in Lebanon.
Picture This delights aesthetes with a 5,200-square-foot gallery overflowing with art by local artists and a bevy of custom frames and matting. Choosing from the design center's 2,000 framing options, including brand names such as Roma and Larson-Juhl ($5–$85/ft.), the preservationists protect family heirlooms, newly acquired paintings, or composite pictures of other frames in expertly crafted wooden homes. With an eye for aesthetic integration, framers encourage guests to bring fabric or color samples to ensure that the new wall decorations match the feel and theme of its new home's interior.
Meander through the art-laden walls bedecked with paintings on canvas and paper prints by local artists such as Charlie Harper ($20–$350). Sleepy rooms get a sprucing up with a 36”x40” Italian countryside ($40), a 24”x30” abstract painting ($30), or a lagniappe from the Ohio State corner, a scarlet-and-gray shrine stocked with mugs, afghans, and pet buckeyes.
