After dealing with an unforseen medical diagnosis and brain tumor, Brannon McCaleb left his job in the music industry and made some big changes in his life. He found inspiration in the time he spent as a kid with his grandpa, who lived near the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. As Brannon shared, "His barn was my playground." He wanted to rekindle his passion for barns, for carpentry & the simpler things in life. That's when his home furnishing company, ReBarn, based in Knoxville, was born.
Using old barn wood, Brannon handcrafts headboards, tables and various items for the home. I particularly like his side tables that quickly add a heap of character, history and texture to a space...
Brannon's headboards can be custom made to your width, height and coloring specifications. This one comes via a 1900's horse farm and has quickly become a shop favorite. I understand their popularity as all of his headboards have an amazing look and feel, plus, they're well priced, starting at just $375.
It's not easy to transition from one part of life that you know and feel secure in to something completely different, even opposite. But if you're brave and have a little patience- much like Brannon, good things can come. Check out all of Brannon's incredible handiwork here.
