Rustic country art comes in many styles. Ride! is a unique piece made of hand worked barn wood hand painted and set with a rough cast iron pony running across a horse shoe hanger.
What could be more country than a running horse, a creature of the plains, beautiful, intelligent and majestic! Ride! is a cast iron running horse above a horse shoe hook mounted on red washed reclaimed wood with the saying Everyday is a good day when you ride, painted above the hook. The board measures approximately 15 5/8 inches x 7 ½ inches and the hook measures approximately 5 3/8 inches x 4 ½ 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 picture or sign has hanging mounts on the back. All of our mounted, cast iron wall décor have been bolted to the wood.
