Ready to post in 2 – 5 days.
Only 3 available at the moment.
A lovely handmade unique ornament.
Whenever I’m at the beach at home or abroad I always collect little bits of driftwood and tiny interesting pebbles and shells. I also use little bits found in forests and woods that I then dry and use. These 3 large cottages in green, blue and red have been made from vintage children’s play blocks from the 1970’s and driftwood found on a beach in Menorca.
I love driftwood and it works so well with distressed chalk paint. Each one I make is completely different to the next which makes each piece unique.
The pieces of driftwood used for the roof of each cottage have been waxed with clear wax. It was one piece of angled driftwood and cut into 3 pieces to make perfect roofs.
I have used some vintage children’s wooden play blocks from the 70’s for the body of the cottage and they have been further distressed with a sander.
They each measure approx. (Including roof) –
Blue – 5.5cm x 5.5 cm and 8cm high
Red – 5.5cm x 5cm and 7.5 cm high
Green – 5.5 cm x 5.5cm and 8cm high.
The door is made from a shaped piece of driftwood. The roof has a chimney made from a nail. The windows are handpainted.
This item is not a toy and has pointed objects.
The scene is well wrapped in bubble wrap for posting.
