There's just no way to recreate the wonderful old and weathered look of a piece like this. We've taken an old stair spindle and married it to a piece of (heavy) weathered pine from an old exterior door and upcycled it into a wonderful GARDEN sign.! Measures OVER TWO FEET Long at 28" and it is 7 3/4" tall. It is 1 5/8" thick (and the piece of board is 1 3/8" thick). Just a beautiful One-Of-A-Kind piece could be turned into a sign post, or simply screwed and hung. You will receive the EXACT piece that you see in the pictures.
