Welcome to Barn Owl Primitives

We’re so happy you stopped by our corner of the web. We’re a family owned, artist-driven shop selling vintage-inspired products, many of them handcrafted and made with love, devotion and a fair bit of coffee-fueled creativity. We also resell home décor that catches our fancy.

A Portrait: Barn Owl Primitives

Meet Kristi, the owner/artist who founded BOP and hear her story. How it all began, what motivates her, and get a little sneak-peek behind the design and production process at the "Barn".

Distressed Wood Sign Décor

One of our specialties is wood signs with hand-painted quotes and sayings. They feature carefully chosen words that bring comfort, lighten the mood or just help us remember to be grateful. Our rustic hand-painted wood signs make great seasonal gifts or an ideal final touch when decorating your home.

We use premium material and skilled artisans to create each one by hand, which means no two are alike. You may notice many of our signs have themes of love, peace and joy. We like to think of our distressed wood signs as heart art.
