The Colorado Flag

Colorado Wood Flag

The original and still awesome Wood Colorado Flag

This is the first reclaimed item I made after we moved to Colorado. It was actually my wife’s idea, so all the credit goes to her. Now, somehow I end up doing all the work from her ideas, but I digress. I made that first one out of part of the neighbors fence. (Don’t worry, I had permission, kind of). Well, those first few were so popular I have been making them ever since.

I make them now in a variety of colors and sizes, but all still from 100% reclaimed lumber. It is so satisfying seeing something that was destined for a landfill hanging on your wall with pride. You know it would look great on your living room wall (or leaning if you are one those hip, decorating types). Heck, get a couple and give one away as a gift.

See the images below for detailed views of the flag as well as design variations, alternate color and no rope options:

All pieces are handcrafted and hand painted from recycled, unique pieces of wood and will differ slightly from the picture. The intent is for that to add to the story. It is impossible to duplicate a piece exactly. It is common for there to be non-structural cracks, knots and imperfections in the finished piece. The idea behind most all my work is for it to look as if it was just pulled out of an old shop or barn, dusted off a little and now displayed beautifully in your home. “Artisan” not “cute.” In that vein I do not put a poly coating of any kind over the pieces. In my opinion when I have done that it detracts from the piece and gives it a “current” look vs a “historic” look. Let it continue to weather! You’ll love it more!
