About and Review page custom table with glass top

Simply put, we don’t believe custom has to be expensive. Custom means unique and different. It shouldn’t require you to break the bank to buy it.

Every piece of furniture we re-purpose has a story. We learn what we can about the pieces or the previous owners from sellers from whom we purchase. We try our best to take “as is” or “as was” photos and we share those with our buyers. As for our from scratch custom pieces, we try to share with our customers the “why” and “how” of those creations.

Our beginning

It all started with THIS door. It’s a custom, one of a kind, unique barn door for our house. After finding a beautiful set of early 1900’s indoor shutters, followed by a whole lot of cutting, sanding, and staining, our vision of re-purposing something that someone chose to discard into a priceless piece came to life. We were hooked.

Excellent service! My furniture came out beautiful! The team was very professional and efficient! I highly recommend Barn Doors and More.

Bruce Brandt

Founder and Co-owner

Bruce is a native of Wisconsin and has also lived in various cities in the U.S. He is an engineer by trade so building things, tearing things apart, and reassembling them comes second nature to him.

Vicki Brandt

Vicki is a native of Maryland and has lived in multiple cities in the U.S. Her day job has been in the legal field, but she’s always enjoyed fixing and repairing things as she hates to see things get discarded. She always has a reason to salvage nearly everything.
