Eco-minded couple Pete and Tanya have been crafting gorgeous steel and wood decor items for more than 20 years. In 1985, the husband-and-wife duo transformed their hog and cattle farm in southwestern Minnesota into a veritable playground for their reuse design.

The couple converted the farm’s hog-feeding station into a woodworking area, and the cattle barn became their metal shop.

Their creations, including this stunning industrial bike sculpture, are somewhere between eclectic style and modern minimalism. As an eco bonus, they’re all made from upcycled metal and wood.

To see more of the crafty couple’s handmade creations, head to their Etsy shop – appropriately dubbed Bacon Square Farm.
