Deconstructed French Blue Vintage Wood Architectural Salvage Porch Support Sections
“Was out huntin’ through the shed and found some old wood pieces. Probably saved them for firewood, but I’m givin’ them a second look cuz of all the Internet smarts I’ve acquired. If you squint your eyes one piece looks like a fish. That’s money,” Gramma Kakie
These three rustic, distressed architectural pieces were once part of one large porch column. Deconstructed, they are three sections ready to use as decorative pieces or ready to incorporate into your assemblage art or repurposing project. The back sides of each piece are flat.
The column was once painted white, and then a very pale dusty rose. Its final color was a lovely French Blue. I did not add any new paint -- these are original colors! As the pictures show there is a lot of distressed wood. To prepare these wood pieces for their next destination in life, I have cleaned, sanded and waxed all of the surfaces, so there is minimal splintering or decayed wood. I sanded into the crevices as well.
Use your imagination and create something unusual! I can see the smallest wood piece as a fish. His mouth is already there, and if you cut it right, you have a fat fish with a tail. Just add fins and eyes! Use the remaining piece as a wall sconce by adding a small platform board.
All three pieces are about 1.5 inches thick each piece. The largest section measures about 29 inches by about 4.25 inches. The middle section measures about 28 inches by 4.25, and the small section measures about 20 inches by about 4 inches. Photo props not included.
