Sponsor of the Week{Old Barn Rescue}

This is sure to be a fun week and very inspiring! This week we are focusing on your walls and more specifically stenciling your walls or anything you can possibly stencil.

I am excited about this week’s sponsor. I love this website and shop. I am so happy that they are CSI Project sponsors.

I think every shop or business has a great story behind it. There is always a dreamer behind each one and the story behind Old Barn Rescue is a good one.

Let me introduce you to Old Barn Rescue and the ladies behind the shop:


This business adventure began in 2003 when my dad told me he needed to tear down the barn from my childhood farm. I couldn’t stand the thought of all that beautiful, weathered, 120-year-old wood going to the landfill or burn pile.  With the encouragement of my friend, Adonna, we gathered some of the wood, collected a stash of old “junk”, started creating, and Old Barn Rescue Company was born!

We soon found ourselves rescuing all kinds of interesting objects from dumpsters, trash piles, recycling centers, garage sales, and thrift stores. From old doors, windows, and molding to old buttons, nails, water faucets, baseballs, game tiles, bottles, hinges, door knobs and hooks – there seems to be no end. We love getting our hands dirty (well not really – we wear gloves!) digging for a perfect treasure to finish a piece.

From the start, Adonna was adding her beautiful calligraphy to many of our items. Due to the popularity, we began to search for a way to “mass produce” her lettering without compromising the integrity of our vintage materials. In the fall of 2008, Old Barn Rescue Company’s Wall Graphic Division was born. We love the versatility and ease of cut vinyl. We can use it on most of our reclaimed materials, and you can now have Adonna’s professional lettering directly on your walls! Our matte finish vinyl looks hand-painted and comes at a wonderful price for changing the look of a entire room!

Adonna is always coming up with new wall graphic designs, most of which are hand-drawn, making them unlike anything else out there.   Her hand-lettering now graces the walls of many a nursery and bedroom, kitchen and bath, classroom and storefront.

With our strong value for “being green”, we use a vinyl manufactured by Oracal USA for our wall decals. They have the most green process of any vinyl manufacturer and have been certified “a Green Product” by meeting certification standards for process and environmental impact. They are constantly looking for ways to reduce waste and pollution and their environmental footprint.

As two WAHM’s (work at home moms) we enjoy being creative and are committed to making sure you, the customer, love what we create.

Our designs grace the walls of a Pottery Barn Store in St. Louis (not for sale) and are in shops in Spokane, WA, Indianna and around the St. Louis area.  We only do a couple shows a year because our stuff is so hard to lug around!

 Now, let me show you some of their work. You will love it!
