Our Backyard Beginnings

The Rustic Barn has been crafting handmade furniture and home decor since June of 2015. Since then, we've brought in people from all over New England to see our showroom. We've dedicated our lives to building furniture and home goods for people who share our passion and style. We reclaim old, weathered wood materials and repurpose it into beautiful rustic wood products of all kinds. Products in our showroom range from everyday essentials like hutches, benches, tables, and chairs to style pieces like wall signs, sconces, and room accents.

Our process begins by capturing the raw material from barns and sheds all over New England. We clean all the nails and screws out, sorting the wood into various categories and run it through our milling process.

About the Wood

The barnwood we use in our furniture has been sourced from all over New England. Some of the barns that the wood comes from are over 200 years old. Every nail hole, wormhole, burn, crack, knot and groove are unique to that piece of wood. Each imperfection tells a different story and the character of these barn boards simply cannot be replicated.  One thing that we can promise - no two pieces will ever be alike.

Barn Salvaging Process
People from all over the Northeast have called and requested we take down an old barn on their property. If you or anyone you know is looking to have a barn taken down, we would love to hear from you.

Our Workshop

We build everything on site in our workshop. It's between these four walls that showroom products and custom projects are brought to life by the hands of master craftsman Steve Martins. Steve enjoys working with the customer from the early stages of design all the way to the last nail. For our customers, we've built custom cabinets, wine racks, bars, tables, mantles, headboards and much, much more.
