Whittle Me This: Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder Launches New Eco-Friendly Business
The Vampire Diaries Season 3 has wrapped, but Ian Somerhalder (Damon) is still keeping himself busy. The eco-friendly actor recently launched a new business venture with his brother Bob. Together they’re running Built of Barnwood (BOB), a company that uses old wood and other building materials to create new furniture and household items.
Ian announced the big news on Twitter, sharing that they’re making “the most beautiful furniture — EVER.” Apparently, the guys are the brains and the hands behind the operation, which works to eliminate waste. No wonder his character was able to whip up all those white oak stakes so easily!
The store, which is located in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, opened in March. If you’re interested in checking out their gorgeous creations, check out their official website here! A percentage of all sales will go to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.
