Cast iron horses looking over a fence ,”Life Makes Sense”, is made of reclaimed wood with a grey wash and lettered with white acrylic paint.
“Life Makes Sense”, is made of reclaimed wood with a grey wash and lettered with white acrylic paint. Life, It makes much more sense in the saddle is lettered above the hooks which are a set of three horse heads over a fence rail made of cast iron. The board measures approximately 12 1/8 inches x 8 ¾ inches and the three horse heads on the fence hook measures approximately 7 3/8 inches x 5 ¼ inches.
Unless otherwise noted, our reclaimed wood comes from the small barn and outbuildings that we have replaced boards on. Most of the pieces will have nail holes, chips and occasionally a slight warp. All show the signs of years of weathering and are therefore very “rustic or primitive”.
We chose to keep the weathered surfaces of our wood products as we loved the “character” the wood has and often use it in our designs. With all its “character” it means that there are groves, cracks and unevenness. And this means that all of the painted lettering is hand drawn and hand painted and as the lettering follows those “characteristics” we find so endearing, it makes the wording have a rustic or primitive look. All of our painted signs and pictures have been sealed for UV and moisture resistance.
Each of our rustic pictures or signs has hanging mounts on the back. All of our mounted, cast iron wall décor have been bolted to the wood.
