Beachcomber's treasure!
You will receive the 9 pieces of found painted driftwood boards pictured here, great for use in your assemblage, mixed media, and other 3D creative projects. This selection contains boards painted in blue, grey, white, and unfinished natural colors. The longest piece measures 17" x 1 1/2".

We can't help but return from any of our walks with pockets-ful of found treasures, and since we currently live just a few miles from the beach, lately we've been lugging home bits and pieces of washed-up, ocean-tumbled goodness.

While we're out, we walk the tideline, collecting trash for the waste bin in on bag, and handfuls of beach glass and unusual driftwood (specifically the ex-human-made kind) in another. Finally I have enough to start sharing!

These all-wood pieces used to be parts of boats, windows, chairs, and other constructions. The ocean has weathered them into colorful pieces full of character and ready for repurposing into something new... a picture frame, funky furniture, magnets, jewelry, you name it.

My favorite part about this collection are the three bright blue pieces! They all come from the same long piece (a 48" board which had to be cut down for shipping) and that means more continuity for your larger constructions- an entire picture frame could be made out of the same board

*****These boards have rusty nails and screws which may be SHARP. I have not trimmed them to preserve their rustic nature, although they can be easily cut off. They should be handled with care. If you would like the sharp bits trimmed off, just let me know-- I am happy to do this at no charge!*****
