Curt Bledsoe and David Wells from Bethel Baptist Church in Galesburg, IL brings us this great salvage stage design.
For this design, they used corrugated tin and barn wood. Thankfully, they had access to a 100-year old barn and the owner donated all materials. Some of the tin was very rusted. This added a very interested design element. They roughed up some of the ends of the barn wood.
They used graph paper to lay out the various pieces. This gave them a guide for cutting the wood and tin. New chain was used as a design feature to contrast with the condition of the wood and tin. The pieces were laid out on the ground before they hung them.
Since their series was on the book of Micah, they used their logo from their graphic designer on 4 joined pieces of barn wood, accented by a few pieces of tin. The logo was projected onto the boards and then painted. A palm sander was used to rough up the paint.
Existing lighting was used to light the set and bring out the various elements.
Total cost: $350 for the chain and hardware.
Total time: About 8 hours with 5 people (not counting actually going out to get the wood and tin)
