Brian Sienkiewicz and his pup named Gypsy Queen live in the quaint town of Ocean Grove, New Jersey. As he tells it they "are just a couple of beach bums that love crafting when they're not surfing". Brian runs Wood Vibrations Restorations where he makes upcycled home decor built from reclaimed wood materials. He finds inspiration in everything. Brian takes old wood doors and turns them into coffee tables or bookshelves and collects amazing pieces of driftwood to transform into candle holders.
Wood Vibrations Restorations began in the Fall of 2013 when Brian was walking around the Brooklyn Flea and got inspired to make his own furniture and decor pieces. During the following winter he started making bookshelves from old wood doors. After making a few, his friends gave him the big push to start selling his creations. Brain started making even more bookshelves and began to make coffee tables as well. It wasn't too long before he had enough inventory to participate in local markets and in the Summer of 2014 he signed up for all the markets he could. As Brian's business grew, so did his work and he began to make driftwood candle holders in the Fall of 2014 among other items.
When Brian is working on a project, he and and Gypsy rise pretty early, about 5:00am. They check the surf and he paddles out if it's good while Gypsy runs on the beach. Then they head home to make coffee and breakfast. Brian usually starts the day with some jazz music to get his creative thoughts flowing. He hardly sketches out plans for a piece but rather takes a look at the reclaimed materials he has on hand that day and it is those materials that spark his ideas on what to build. After an idea comes to him, he gets right to work. At the end of the day he takes photos of his work and relaxes with Gypsy while sends photos to clients or posts on his social media accounts.
Be sure to stop by the Wood Vibrations Restorations booth at the Fall Bazaar and say hi to Brian. He will be there on Saturday, September 24th and we can't wait to see what he will be bringing!
