Old Barn Rescue started in 2003 when Jan Michalski was asked to help tear down her childhood farm. She and her friend, Adonna Deibel, couldn’t stand the thought that beautiful, weathered, 120-year-old wood was headed to a landfill or fire pit. So they decided to change the storyline, take what others considered “junk” or throwaway, and rescue it.
Their mission soon spread to dumpsters, trash piles, recycling centers, garage sales and thrift stores. The repurposing and reenvisioning started in Jan’s basement with scrabble tiles, buttons, and old faucets and hooks from estate sales. Along the way, Adonna, a caligrapher, started lettering on some of the wood.
Due to the popularity of the lettering, the company began looking for a way to mass produce it without compromising the integrity of the vintage materials. So in 2008, Old Barn Rescue Company’s Wall Decal Department was born. The cut vinyl messages add another dimension to reclaimed materials and create an instant design element to a wall.
The matte finish vinyl looks hand painted and comes at a wonderful price for changing the look of an entire room. Today the mission of rescuing what is old and timeless and combining it with today’s fashions includes a new “Threads Department.” Customers can now have many of Old Barn Rescue’s designs in heat-pressed vinyl on onesies, t-shirts, pillow shams and more. From artistically designed quotes for a wall space, one-of-a-kind shabby decor from reclaimed materials, or adorable heat-pressed threads, all Old Barn Rescue products are handmade and everything–from the reclaimed material to the eco-friendly vinyl–is designed to be not only inspirational but earth friendly
