Made entirely of pallet boards, white wash stain and polyurethane top coats.
27” high, functions as storage for cleaning supplies in a bathroom.
Seasonally dormant tree trunk and limbs made from a wood that resembles walnut.
Whimsical note is the solitary green leaf.

A real beauty piece. Living, or used to be living appliques make the difference between ordinary high craft/low budget and everyday art. Hope you can take it with you when you move. A pleasure to view.

That looks fantastic! You have a very good eye for perspective.

I love how the larger white frame breaks up the delicate tree.

Great Job!

I like the creativity, functionality, and that it is earth friendly. My preference would be for the wood tones to balace each other. Might stand out it the area though. For me paint is last resort. Just some thoughts. Nice work!

I really like this on so many levels…recycling materials, wonderful design, craftsmanship and a bit of fun thrown in too. Great work!
