“You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Maya Angelou
This quote speaks right to the heart of the Southern Accents team. Not only do we have a team of creatives at SA, but, we have also surrounded ourselves with creative people who we collaborate with on a regular basis. While the heart and soul of Southern Accents is the rescue of salvageable architectural elements and antiques, we are also all about finding creative ways to repurpose some of the materials that we rescue. This is one of the areas where we can allow our creative juces to flow!
Salvaged wood has become an increasingly large part of our business. As this side of our business continues to grow, so does our pile of wood cutoffs! We hate to discard anything so, we are always looking for ways to repurpose these wood scraps. Thanks to the talents of team member Josh Howe and local artist Leldon Maxcy, we currently have a wonderful collection of salvaged wood items that have been created from some of our wood scraps. You'll find wall art cutouts of the state of Alabama as well as Cullman county. We have a new selection of custom made wood frames. We also have a collection of salvaged wood items from Josh which include beautiful cutting boards, honey dippers and even a night lamp... all made from salvaged wood.
For all you DIYers... we have something just for you! We've started packaging our wood cutoffs into craft packs. Each 12" x 3.5" x 14" Priority Mail box is full of your choice of salvaged wood pieces. Choices include painted wood in colors of blue, white, green, natural, or a multi colored mix. Each pack could contain a mix of wood, beadboard and trim pieces. The packs are ready to ship and can be used to create your own work of art! Give us a call at 877-737-0554. Have your credit card ready, let us know your color choices and your box will be on it's way!!
Stop by our showroom or visit us online at sa1969.com and take a look at our selection of salvaged wood art and craft packs. Art work starts at $25 and the craft packs are $24.95 plus shipping.

Pray Hard & Speak Life
Each Tuesday morning, the SA team meets around our large salvaged wood table. The main purpose for the meeting is to discuss the week ahead, go over work orders, schedule deliveries, etc. We also spend time sharing our personal journeys, goals, struggles. Like any family, there are times of laughter around that big ole table, and there are times of tears. Our collective goal is to motivate and encourage one another to be the best that we can be.
Last week, a local friend, Cliff Powell, released a book which is available for purchase on Amazon.com Pray Hard & Speak Life: Finding Hope in the Midst of: Addictions Bankruptcy Suicide Cancer. If you are in need of words of encouragement, we highly recommend checking out this beautifully written book. It will lift your spirit and your soul.
