At Kind Designs, you can create anything for your home.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Kevin Hindmarsh loved woodworking, but he never had the time to actually do it. Just two years ago he retired and decided to start his hobby.
I said, “I found a product that my wife likes, so could you make this for me?” I said I can definitely make it for you. I was making things for her, her mother, her sisters, her neighbors, and people started wanting to buy them,” Hindmarsh said. Ta.
Hindmarsh and his wife founded Kind Designs. The couple makes a variety of crafts, from door hangers, shelving, ornaments and other home décor items, but it’s no ordinary design.
“This is all recycled wood,” Hindmarsh explained. “We use fence wood, barn wood, pallets. And I go dumpster diving.”
These take what some people would consider trash and make the perfect gift for any holiday, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Hindmarsh says he can make almost anything. The detail and time he puts into these creative works is what makes this place so special.
Reindeer made of pickets and fence boards are the company’s most popular items. Mr Hindmarsh said he started making reindeer last week and has sold more than 100.
The company has also achieved the following results: I’m based in Omaha but travel as far as Lincoln. The couple occasionally sells crafts at Salon Deja Vu on A Street.
Hindmarsh enjoys watching customers fall in love with his handmade pieces.
“It’s kind of nice,” he said. “I was really happy, especially knowing that this one was destined for the trash. It’s kind of fun to know that you’re saving our landfill and making people happy at the same time.”
