Prairie Grain Elevators Wall Decor
This wall hanging comes ready to hang and includes one of my oldest photographs from 1989 of some grain elevators near a town called Cabri, Saskatchewan, where my dad was born. I digitized my negative to get this end product.
How it’s made
Prairie Grain Elevators Wall Decor is handmade in my studio from a carefully selected pieces of reclaimed wood. Each piece of wood is unique and has its own personality. The art you receive will have the same photograph as the listing images. However, the wood will have its own interesting colour, texture, imperfections and style. It is completely handmade. Firstly, the process starts with sanding the wood. Secondly, putting biscuits in the wood for better stability. Next, I whitewash the wood so the colours will pop,then manually transfer the photograph and covering it will a UV varnish. Finally, it is stapled and it’s ready to hang anywhere you like.
The photographs are 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14 approximately. There will be an additional inch or 2 more width and length for the wood. Larger sizes can also be made by request. However, they require more than one piece of paper for the transfers due to limits of the size of copies. For instance, a photograph 11×25 will require 2 pieces of 11×17 paper.
Any photograph can be transferred to reclaimed wood or tile. Custom orders are always welcome. Please send me a message to discuss your custom wall hanging.
