I don’t know how this guy does it. From starring on “The Vampire Diaries” to running the Ian Somerhalder Foundation to receiving the prestigious Wyler Award for his animal activism, and now the amazing Ian Somerhalder is starting his own business.

This weekend, the 33-year-old actor shared on Twitter that he and his brother Bob are launching a new business based around reclaiming and recycling barn wood to build, as Somerhalder puts it, “the most beautiful furniture – EVER – we design and build. No waste from our family to yours :).”

Built Of Barnwood, a relatively small company (for now), opens their first furniture store on Monday in Century Hall in Bay St. Louis, Miss. Somerhalder can hardly contain his excitement and is tweeting up a storm, “. . . very stoked about this. You’re going to love this stuff. Unique and recycled ;).”

Here’s just a preview of the many products the Somerhalder brothers will offer. Stunning, yes?
