The Story of Us


Tena Marie

 

Hi!
My name is Tena, I am the owner of  Up the Old Barn Road, as well as a treasure hunting junkie.
I have always had a creative mind and a passion for providing a “face lift” to just about anything, to breathe new life into old, tired pieces. I can see the potential in whatever comes my way. Just like this little gem below! I picked it up for free, worked my magic and sold it for $30!!! How is that for a quick project that I spent $0 on! I had everything I needed in my shop!

Trash to Treasure
I am from Lincoln, CA but reside in a small town called, Ione, CA. We don’t even have a stoplight here! I live on a 5 acre ranch which is the perfect size for me! I love it out here! I have a workshop for woodworking, a LARGE craft room and a paint room out here, all together in an outbuilding outside!

I am also a Mother to Karlee, 22 & Kaela, 20, and a brand new grandson, Danny who is 3 months old at the time of this post. They have kept me very busy to this point but now I have time for doing what I love, building & creating! I can’t wait to build something for you!

My girls are going to be upset that I am using this picture but I don’t care! I am a Glammi now so I get to do whatever I want….Right?  lol  🙂

About Our Barn Wood

The barn wood I use to make my décor is from our family & friends ranches located in historical Sloughouse & Ione, Ca; it was salvaged from a Blacksmith’s shop, dating back to the late 1800’s, early 1900’s. I have spent many hours “handpicking” the ideal wood that is “perfectly imperfect” to create with. I everything the old-fashioned way, with my own two hands in my workshop located in Ione, Ca.

Extra care is taken in preserving the natural beauty of the wood by sealing it with a matte finish sealer. The wood is very old so you will find saw tooth hooks placed on the back of the wall hangings for easy hanging. I have been known to add old, rusty barbed wire, please know that it is DECORATIVE ONLY, some of the wire is brittle & will break easily.

I you enjoy your unique handcrafted piece of history. Remember us the next time you feel the need to take a walk “Up the Old Barn Road”!

Thanks!
