~ "Watershed" Reclaimed Wood Starburst Artwork ~
Beachy. Relaxed. Vintage.
Solidly constructed from an eclectic mix of beautiful 1890s reclaimed rough sawn pine, salvaged cedar, vintage oak and walnut stained ceilings, flooring and window casings from Missouri homes of the 1920s through today.
In July of 2015 we were honored to create and donate this piece to "The Watershed Committee of the Ozarks" annual fundraiser "Watershed Summer Gala".
All proceeds from their silent auction will benefit the Watershed Committee and help them with their education and outreach projects.
UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that this piece of artwork raised $600 for "The Watershed Committee of the Ozarks" and helped enable them to reach their fund-raising goal of $20k!!!
We began by cutting the wood into narrow tapers and finishing them in a distressed mix of turquoise blues, navy, cream and yellow paints and attached them to new plywood.
These narrow strips of reclaimed mix of lumber give this piece a decidedly uncomplicated rustic vibe while the exciting contemporary pattern simultaneously soothes and invigorates your senses.
Over 170 pieces - individually hand sanded and hand painted were carefully placed, glued and pin nailed to the new plywood backing... then squared and trimmed and sanded to size.
Framed in either new or salvaged and stained Rough Sawn Cedar.
All new nail holes will be filled and hand sanded.
Frame Style: The cedar frame shown in photos features a mitered corner frame.
All surfaces are finished and sealed with at least two coats of quality clear matte poly and a third coat of a satin poly finish... with hand sanding between coats for a feel and luster that resembles wax and is neither too dull or too shiny.
The back is neatly finished with brown paper and is signed by artists, titled and dated.
All Artwork arrives Ready to Hang with Two (2) Large Metal D Ring Hangers.
Recommended method of cleaning/dusting: Gently use a soft bristled brush or vacuum with brush attachment.

NOTE: Our Reclaimed Wood Artwork is One-of-a-Kind. While each piece will be carefully handmade using the same varieties of reclaimed woods… finished in the same or similar stain and paint colors and techniques...it is virtually impossible to replicate two different pieces of this artwork to look exactly alike.
The reclaimed wood found in our artwork may contain some or all of the following: the original surface saw cuts, wood knots and holes, uneven thicknesses, notches, scraps, crevices, rust stains, nail holes, discolorations and other imperfections or blemishes. Each will be examined on an individual basis by the Seller for its integrity and solidness – and/or may be filled with wood filler, hand sanded to remove splinters or rough patches or left alone to create textural interest.
These characteristics are what make each piece of artwork unique and should not be considered a defect.
However, if one of these features is a concern - please speak to the Seller prior to ordering or at the beginning of the project to avoid delays.
