A charming, rustic barn wood and cast iron sign with a witty promulgation! Ruler of the Roost is a cast iron rooster with double hooks with a touch of color. Mounted to reclaimed wood and washed in red the saying “The cock may crow but this hen runs the show” is hand painted above the hook. The board measures approximately 12 ¼ inches x 5 inches and the hook measures approximately 6 ½ inches x 3 3/8 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.
