Etsy Boutique of the Week: Fallen Walnut


walnut wood sunburst mirror

This lovely handcrafted walnut mirror isn’t made from just any ol’ reclaimed wood.

This wood came from a 50-year-old tree in the creator’s backyard
that was torn down after a storm.

What can I say?
I’m a sucker for beautiful pieces with good stories attached.

Item shown: $275. Choose other mirrors starting at $99.

Available at Fallen Walnut.

For me, a room just isn’t a room until you add at least
one natural handcrafted element
and I love the pieces from The Design Pallet.

Each item is lovingly made from locally salvaged and reclaimed lumber.

They’re beautiful finds for eco-lovin’ design addicts like moi
and would make lovely hostess or holiday gifts.

Featured items from $32-$49.

Available at The Design Pallet.
