~ Reclaimed Wood Horizontal Timber Artwork "Pebble Beach" ~
Pebble Beach"... ... invites you to slow down... sit back... and welcome the calming colors of your favorite beach into your home.
Remember how relaxed you felt as you strolled across the golden sand, along the water's edge... a light breeze blowing through your hair, the sun warming your shoulders and the smooth coolness of those perfectly round white, grey and black pebbles beneath your feet?
For those few glorious moments... you didn't have a care in the world...
Now you can recapture those moments any time you want in the comfort of your home with "Pebble Beach"... by turning your ordinary "every-days" into your own private getaway any time you'd like.
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. They provide the perfect canvas backdrop in which you'd find many of the same natural textures and craggy outcroppings found along the seashore.
Using various both paint and stains I attempted to recapture those soothing and subtle tones of the beach – the watery blue-grays, the oyster whites, the sandy tans and the darker shades of the stone nuggets.
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.)
