10 Fixes for Bare Wall Blues Posted by: Hedi Hemenway | 0 Comments

Ever look over at your wall and get sad that it’s bare? Or maybe you’ve had the same ole picture or art hanging there for years. We’ve got the perfect items to beat the bare wall blues.

1. Shadow Box

Shadow boxes, based on naval history, were created to keep a sailor from having their shadow touch land before their body, thus giving them bad luck. Their souvenirs from voyages were set in these boxes and presented once ashore. Our shadow boxes are made from reclaimed bourbon barrels and have the natural char marks to add a rustic feel. They add space and shelving to display your prized possessions just as the sailors did.


2. Reclaimed Barrel Heads and Clocks

Tick tock, tick tock. Reclaimed barrel clocks can keep you from running late! Put in any room, the kitchen, den, game room and always be on time. The “Office of the Master Distiller” could use its own timepiece too. Reclaimed Barrel Heads will add a touch of flair to any space.


3. Wine Rack

This handmade horseshoe wine rack is not only attractive but functional. The reclaimed horseshoes provide a place to show off your favorite wine bottles and wine glasses.


4. Support your Team or State

Whether it’s Hook em Horns, Hotty Toddy, or Woo Pig Sooie. Show your team spirit or love for your home town with a piece of art. Watercolor State Prints add a touch of color, school spirit can be found on Canvas Prints and the reclaimed wood and shaped metal pieces add dimension to any wall. These works of art are the statement piece all rooms need!


5. Patriotic Pieces

Display your patriotism for the USA. There are reclaimed wood rustic American Flags and those that sport the red, white, and blue. If you’re a bourbon lover you’ll love the American Flag Reclaimed Bourbon Barrel Hoop Head and the Patriot Limited Edition Reclaimed Barrel Head that has the United States carved into the center.

6. Reclaimed Barnwood Kitchen Herb Garden Planter

Every kitchen needs an herb garden. With this hanging planter you can add life to your walls, free up counter space, and have fresh herbs year round. The multiple mason jar planters give freedom to have multiple flavors all in one convenient location.


7. Signs with Southern Sayings

Add some character to your wall with some Southern sayings.  We even have a few special pieces your pets will appreciate. You can bless this kitchen, show your southern pride, or add a little humor “Lord, Give me the coffee to change the things I can change and wine to accept the things I can’t”. 



8. Wine Staves

Wine drinkers these are for you! With sayings like “Wine Lovers Gather Here” and “Cowboys Are My Weakness” you’re sure to find the perfect one. You can hang a single stave or stack a few together. Spruce up that bare space with these unique and charming pieces.

9. Entry Way and Coat Racks

Imagine, you walk into your home, remove your coat, hat, and scarf but where to hang them? The decorative entry way piece provides hooks for hanging and a shelf to store other items or add some decor.

10. Frames

Update old frames with beautifully handcrafted reclaimed wine barrel frames. Show state pride with State Picture Frames made from distressed wood. Change things up with “Steampunk Inspired” wood frames and for the Harley Davidson enthusiast we have a Chopper Motorcycle Frame.
