Mi Old Barn uses reclaimed/repurposed barnwood from the Thumb of Michigan. The barnwood used in each Michigan sign is over 100 years old. Mi Old Barn’s signature HOME/LAKE/LOVE signs are unique in their own way and no two signs are identical! The barnwood is cut, washed, sanded, traced and painted. The “O”, “A” or “I” in HOME, LAKE, LOVE, CABIN, COTTAGE, UP NORTH, MICHIGAN, GO BLUE and STATE is replaced with laser cut wood in the shape of the state of Michigan.
