New beginnings

  • January 14, 2017


This project is very special because it reminds us that the old can be made new. These were old fallen fence boards picked up after Hurricane Matthew in late 2016. After some love and care, the boards revealed their beautiful character. I made this piece for my sister and brother-in-law as a wedding gift to establish their marriage on January 1, 2017. To me, this project represents new beginnings and should remind us that there is always an opportunity for healing and restoration, we just have to look beyond the weathered surface.

  • Savannah's wedding gift project is just beautiful. Love the idea of old being restored to beauty.

  • I love this family focused project and the re- use of the fence from the hurricane is very creative.
