Unique Household Items, Made with Reclaimed Wood

With all the trash going into landfills and being incinerated, it's refreshing to find an artist that appreciates using reclaimed wood to make useful items for around the home.

James Martinez is known as frommarz on Etsy.

 His repertoire includes more 'unique' items like recliners to hold your mp3 players and cell phones, ACEO displays and business card holders, yarn ball holders, planters, and cd/dvd cases.

He also makes awesome shadow boxes, night lights, photo frames, storage boxes, candle/sconce holders, and mirrors.

I would like to thank James for doing his part in helping save the planet, and going green!

Check out his other half, Kay Martinez, aka VerveInteriors for  floor cloths, ACEOs, and other beautiful art, inspired by traditional Indian-wedding henna art known as mehndi or mehendi.  Plus, 10% of your purchase price will go to  Team EFA Artists Helping Animals' Charity of the Month !
