Handpainted Rustic Wood Signs

Creating custom wooden signs, perfect for your home and gift giving, using the highest quality craftsmanship, eco-friendly paints and reclaimed wood.

Using reclaimed/repurposed wood means each piece is completely unique thanks to the imperfections such as nail holes, dings, knots.  No attempt is made to hide or cover these.  Even with imperfections we can create something beautiful.

Purchasing one of our signs also helps us support Brain Tumour Research, Mind and SMIRA.  Read our story to find out more...

Making A Difference | The Imperfect Wood Company

Making A Difference

The main reason behind making my signs is to try to make a difference to people lives.  I would like to share a little background into this, it's rather quite personal but I am also finding it quite therapeutic to share and let this out of my system.  Talking is always the answer, but when you are a quiet person, writing it all down is just as good!
