Randy, Deb, and Brian Grinde of DeForest, Wisconsin have turned a hobby into a business. Several years ago, while searching for lawn ornaments for their yard, they were disappointed in the selection and quality of items they found. So they decided to make their own. Soon, friends, neighbors, and passers-by asked if they could order the items they made. Eventually their orders grew and they decided to start their own business, Accent Corner.
The Grinde's support for the University of Wisconsin led them to focus initially on Badger sports graphics. Shapes including Bucky Badger, a football helmet, and the motion "W" can be hung from a hook, attached to an aluminum stake, or attached to a building, fence, or other flat surface inside or out. The Grindes have worked hard to research equipment and materials and to improve on their products. The quality, artistic detail, and durability of their yard decorations are sure to please everyone who displays them.
