Last year, Mr. R&R’s mom mentioned that her guest bedroom felt like it was missing something. Mr. R&R and I decided to make a headboard using red barnwood. The color would be perfect in the guest bedroom and the barnwood would add a new texture to offset the quilts she makes.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the red barn wood headboard was so well liked that it was placed in the guest bedroom of the new cabin addition. I smile every time I walk in the room. I love that his parents really like our rustic and refined style and have added a bit of us to their cabin. Fast forward…we needed to get Mr. R&R’s parents a special thank you gift. A co-worker’s husband had just started Barnwood Squared. Cole uses “reclaimed barn wood and rusted metal” to create “framed quilt squares”. I saw a wooden quilt square that included red barn wood (like the headboard) and dark wooden pieces that matched the bedding in the guest bedroom. Since Mr. R&R’s mom quilts, this felt like the perfect gift. Each barnwood quilt is signed and included a metal wire for hanging.
Christmas will be here before you know it. Visit Barnwood Squared now and find that special unique gift (or get one for yourself!).
