Meet the Somerhalder Brothers, Bob and Ian...
...and Peyton, Bob's son
These three crafty men started a home decor and furniture store in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, using all reclaimed, recycled, and re-purposed vintage wood and building materials. Acording to their website Built Of Barnwood is about a passion for reusing things that are often forgotten, finding hidden beauty, and creating something from what we have. They are speaking our language and we love it! Plus look at how beautiful their work is...
If you don't live in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, you can order pieces on their website, or on ebay. But we haven't gotten to the best part...
They are running an Earth Day Special on these vintage green crosses. They are trying to sell 1000 by midnight tonight! A portion of the proceeds go to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which "aims to empower, educate, and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures." If you buy 5 crosses you will also get a personalized, autographed headshot from Ian Somerhalder. Click here to support the cause and buy an Earth Day cross.
Let the Upcycling continue! Happy Earth Day everyone!
Jen and Jess
