With the do-it-yourself trend becoming more and more popular, we wanted to get in on it! While Pinterest didn’t start the craze, it definitely facilitated it. For those of you with Pinterest boards, we’re sure you’ve got a long to-do list involving that old, grungy something-or-other in your garage. Maybe you’ve attempted it? Whether you succeeded or failed, it’s probably a story worth sharing. The simplest of them all is probably the DIY Chalkboard. It’s pretty cut and dry: grab an old picture frame, take out the picture, and paint the glass! Pretty fail-proof, right? What you’ll need:Read More
Those with modern tastes would love this bright kitchen with its stainless appliances and sleek white cabinets unencumbered by any sort of handle or decoration. If the entire space were this bright and slick, it might take on an almost sterile look but the warm wood flooring, the old exposed brick wall in the adjoining hallway, and the simple wood counter all help soften the space and give it a more inviting feeling. The touch of industrial decor is another bonus — these backless stools tucked underneath the counter look very much like our Industrial Factory Backless Stool. The backless stools are a great choice here as they can be pushed underneath the bar when not in use freeing up floor space and leaving the walkway open for traffic flow.
Our Industrial Factory stools take their design cues straight from the Machine Age of the early 20th century when American steel production went into high gear between the two world wars. Furniture took on a sleek, efficient look and this type of stool was often found in bustling factories and warehouses. Their timeless design is perfect for homes such as this one or for commercial businesses trying to capture an industrial vibe with their decor.
The sturdy vintage stools are crafted entirely from steel and feature a fixed, solid black walnut seat. Choose the classic Black or Galvanized finish for a rustic look to complement a farmhouse or traditional home, or choose the Barn Red for a more retro feel in your urban loft.
The American-made Industrial Factory Stool is also available in a backed version that features the same solid black walnut seat but with a swivel design. The backed stools would make a delightful addition to a local pub, a restaurant with tall tables, for the workshop in the garage, or for the man cave downstairs!

When we talk about home décor, it’s often from a woman’s perspective. But what happens when the man of the house wants a say in the decorating decisions? Depending on the man, you could end up with a pool table on the patio, a dartboard in the kitchen, and a PGA limited-edition golf ball chandelier in the bedroom. For Father’s Day, give the men in your life a nudge in the right direction with some trendy Industrial Decor from Barn Light Electric!Read More
Just in case you haven’t noticed, there’s been a population explosion of late that begs for our attention. Thrift stores with names like Second Hand Rose or New to You are popping up everywhere along with vintage shops and industrial decor showrooms. No matter where you live, the industrial trend has taken off gathering up new converts like Billy Graham at a 1950s tent revival.
Here at Barn Light Electric, we too love the idea of taking something old and giving it new life much like our line of Vintage Barn Lighting. And what better complement to one of these beautiful antique lights than some industrial furniture in the same space? Take this industrial factory cart for example. It’s loaded with vintage treasures like a discarded tackle box, an old dish drainer, and vintage soda crates that hold odds and ends. And the rolling cart keeps all these pieces tidy with the mobility to move where you need it or simply out of the way! We offer a smaller factory cart called The Armory Vintage Industrial Work Station. This 100 percent American made cart features reclaimed steel, salvaged local wood, and industrial grade cast iron wheels. This heavy duty cart can take on any number of jobs from mobile kitchen island or microwave cart to printer station or craft table.Read More
