~ Reclaimed Wood Horizontal Timber Artwork "Minneapolis" ~
The "Minneapolis" expands upon the simple rustic design and the dreamy color palette of "Pebble Beach" in a generous 2' x 5' size that makes it perfect for the space above your sofa, fireplace, headboard or television set!
Or hang it vertically in those tall, narrow spaces, like the blank wall at the end of your hall that is begging for your attention!
It's warm Espresso Brown anchors the multi-layered, textured grays, whites and creams with a sense of pure luxury while a caramel candy brown provides the eye a scrumptious place to land.
Very easy to live with in the living room, den or bedroom… the "Minneapolis" is the perfect complement to other colors you may want to introduce into the room… making the "Minneapolis" a sure favorite in your home for many years.
This Reclaimed Wood Artwork was created using reclaimed rough sawn cedar fencing that was ripped to width and laid out in a Horizontal Timber pattern.
Rough Sawn Cedar Frame: finished in an environmentally friendly water based stain: "Ebony" - a rich dark black.
All new nail holes will be filled and hand sanded.
Frame Style: (your choice):
The reclaimed cedar fencing frame shown in photos features a squared corner frame.
Mitered corners are also available upon request.
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.
My husband salvaged (i.e. purchased) 850 brand new rough cedar "scraps" from a small fencing company who was installing a 4' privacy fence.
Here's the kicker: These 1" x 8" rough cedar boards only come in 6' lengths.
So guess where the "extra" 2 FEET of beautiful brand new cedar planks go?
Yep, you guessed it... the L A N D F I L L !!!
And its happening hundreds, if not thousands of times... everyday... in your neighborhood and mine... all around the world.
I don't know about you... but the thought of all this perfectly good wood going to waste makes me want to cry.
But since crying doesn't help anything we have chosen instead to create beautiful pieces of affordable art for you and your family to enjoy for years to come!
(P.S. We also rescued the older, beautifully weathered - but mostly in great condition - wood fence that was being torn down.)
