A Rustic shelf with a limewash twist.. this is the Austrian Baltic Pine Shelf with a whitewash effect applied, to create a Scandinavian mood. Beautifully imperfect with the grain showing through. Sanded smooth with a sealer applied.
If you'd like to see the shelf without the whitewash, please see this listing:
Wondering what the story is behind this beautiful timber?
Presenting the reclaimed and aged Austrian 🇦🇹 Baltic Pine Shelf (that's right, Austrian, not Australian!)
I'm Super happy to have sourced these Reclaimed and aged Austrian Baltic Pine boards from a wood collector who salvaged them from an old home in Hamilton Hill.
The Baltic Pine made it over to Western Australia just after World War ll for hundreds of kit style homes around Perth.
The well aged timber when milled back to life shows the light honey colour and oxidation that only comes into play when this type of timber ages over at least 60 years. To think this tree was only a sapling in the 1800s.
Thrilled to be working with this material and the fine smell that comes through that alpine scent from Austria I can never tire of. You can see part of this process documented on my Instagram page:
Each piece is individually milled and with this style of shelf, I have sanded to edge to show both the aged characteristics and fresh grain coming through.
Sanded smooth and sealed with water based sealer.
If you would like to customise this shelf or need a quote for two or more, just send me a conversation and I'll send you a price.
This shelf is made to order - please note that the knots, grain and edge will differ from the picture.
If you'd like more or less of the raw edge showing, let me know.
Please allow for 2-3 weeks turn around to make.
Ready to mount. Very sturdy and excellent quality Italian Made Hardware included.
