Turning an Old Barn into an Antiques Shop

We are just eight days away from the big Grand Opening of the Rusted Roots barn shop in Mebane! I really can’t believe it. We have worked for the last year to bring this place to life and to have it lie right in front of us is CRAZY!!! We are so excited to have all of you come visit us!

We’ve been so busy the last few weeks or so renovating the old barn that we haven’t taken the time to share with you all our progress here on the blog. If you follow on Facebook and Instagram, you know that we have been busy busy, with barn wood, rusty tin, and old truck here and there! Ha ha!! Lots of changes in the old barn shop, including the arrival of our old rusty truck!

We started on this wall a couple weeks ago. We knew from the day we walked into the old barn that this would be where the old truck counter would live, so I was anxious to get this wall done and get the counter moved into place.

We documented the whole process in this time-lapse video.

Crazy, right?? I mean we lifted a HALF-A-TRUCK!!! Ha ha!! But I love how it fits so perfectly on that wall. And we plan to turn that old truck into… wait for it… our T-shirt display!!! Because don’t all old truck tees deserve to be displayed on an old truck?!!!

I’ll be sure to share the finished display with you on Facebook and Instagram when we get it done! We also covered this wall…

Like the rest of the barn, it was a blank slate. So we opted for old wood and rusty tin.

We are working on getting these lights hung above our checkout counter today. Like everything, it is taking longer to install these than we had planned. But it’s coming along. And the checkout counter is almost done. It just needs drawers and a little door on the side.

our AWESOME business card display! Try hanging a truck door on a wall. That is no small feat, my friends! That thing weighs a TON!

Gosh! When I put it all on paper (you know, internet paper) I can see why we are so exhausted. And all of this before we even moved stuff in! Y’all gotta hop over to social media to see the progress since all of this! Whew!!

But we are in the last homestretch before the BIG day!!! And we are so excited to have all of you come visit us at the new barn shop in Mebane. Our Grand Opening is Friday, April 21 from 10am-5pm. We will have food trucks, live music, and more!! And the celebration continues on Saturday, April 22 from 10am-5pm. We hope to see you there!!
