we are Barn To Be Wild

Life is about using the whole box of crayons!! Barn to be Wild was established in 2012 for the purpose of reimagining and reinventing antique and vintage items to embellish your home and garden. Vintage chic, shabby chic, flea-market style - call it what you will but these are definitely not your grandma's antiques! Fresh colours and updated style provide a new life to furniture through the use of VOC free Canadian chalk/clay/mineral paint and finishes from Aspire.

A range of décor accessories from funky to charming add to the fun of giving your space just the right feel. Barn to be Wild is committed to providing its clients with affordable options for home decor and gift giving. No big city pricing here!! Custom finishing of your own pieces is also available.

We delight in offering every shopper a unique experience. Browse our charming space and discover local artisan treasures, fabulous jewelry, handbags, and scarves as well as a range of Canadian made products perfect for a personal treat or a special gift.

We would like to extend a personal invitation to each of you to visit us at the Barn, tucked away in the woods just west of Orillia on Highway 12 near the Horseshoe Valley Road. A trip to Barn to be Wild promises to be a fun and relaxing outing for everyone!! We look forward to meeting you!!

Cheers everyone! Michelle Tudhope
