How We Got Started

Amy's family barn was coming down, and we hated to see that barn wood go to waste. It is such a big part of our Iowa history. Instead of letting the barn be buried or burned down, we brought some of the wood to our home in Omaha and started using it to create home decor. We started small, doing farmer's markets and craft shows.

We had the opportunity to move back to Des Moines, so we did. At that point, our hobby of creating unique home decor items had taken off more than we could have ever imagined. We took a chance and signed a lease on a cute storefront in Valley Junction, a historic shopping district in West Des Moines. In October 2015, we opened our doors and haven't looked back since.

Some of the barn wood we use remains the bright red it was 100 years ago while other pieces are weathered down. It's worn, rustic, knotted, and beautiful. We hope you agree and would like a piece of the barn in your home.

We love taking old finds and turning them into new, fun decor items. On our website, you will find re-purposed items along with brand new items we have created.

Thank you for taking a look at our website. Let us know if you have any questions.
