About The Rustic Barn
Merideth & Adam Kinney
Welcome to our little business!
My love of building and crafty-creativeness started at a young age. I remember spending time in the garage with my mom cutting wood, building and painting. In fact, most of the saws and building materials in our garage were gifts from my father. Our basement had a dedicated craft area for anything she could imagine. In school I took to art naturally and attended college as an Art Major, then a Graphic Designer. While graphic design and web development were challenging, they weren’t fulfilling my passion.
In 2018, after a year of building and refinishing furniture, we launched Twine & Tumbleweeds. In 2021 we were able to realize our dream of owning a small farm! We purchased a beautiful home on just over four acres, and immediately set to work remodeling the basement for my mom to move in with us. We added a music studio for our son, a flock of chickens, a new puppy and four goats to the farm this year alone and rebranded ourselves to rebranded to the The Rustic Barn. I can’t even imagine what we will do next and honestly, that’s all part of the fun!
My husband Adam, aka HandyHubs, is the builder. I dream it up and he whips it together. I scavenge vintage and antique pieces to revive, and complete all finishing work on new builds. I am a big fan of all things farmhouse, chippy and ship lapped!!
We use our blog primarily to document the DIY projects of our home, the resources we use, and our design ideas. Hopefully you find something of interest and we bring you a little inspiration along the way! You can also order custom furniture from our SHOP or buy recently refinished pieces for your home. We are excited to add more products to the shop in 2022, including personalized home decor and gifts.
HH and I feel truly blessed to grow in this life together and hope that you enjoy reading about our adventures here and hopefully buying some creations as well. Join us as we share our great and not-so-great moments in DIY world!!
Thanks for visiting us!
