Our Story



 It all started with making a few picture frames from some used pallets and a board that had fallen off of our barn. The old weathered wood was a nice contrast against the landscape photograph and requests came to create more. One thing led to another and now we create rustic industrial, steampunk style lighting fixtures and equipment, Our upcycled lights have been created from plumbing pipe, whiskey bottles and just about anything that catches our eye. We are George and Tammy Schmidt and enjoy being able to take something that was discarded and give it a new life and purpose,.. such as a light, table or other item.  

 In an era where it is easy to replace the old or broken with new, we have always tried to salvage it first.  In the disposable world that we live in it is great to reuse and re-purpose as much as we can. 


Just as we believe in rescuing things, we also believe in helping those in need, so every month we will pick a cause and donate 10% of your purchase to that cause.  

This Months Cause is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society  10% of all sales will we donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to aid those in need.  Please consider the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for your own donation.
