PRODUCT STORY

Beth says: I'm Beth Anderson...eco-artist and imperfectionist on a mission to live a simple life. I make pictures out of shipping pallets from local businesses that do not recycle them so they would otherwise end up in landfills and other roadside finds. In other words, I make something outta nothing.



I believe beauty lies in the imperfections -- Knotholes, cracks and rust are three of my favorite elements of reclaimed wood. Are these flaws? In my world, they are the root of character! 'Imperfections' add an element of surprise to an otherwise ordinary piece of art.

We think Beth's self-described "imperfect" piece could be the perfect touch to complete a rustic room. Does it have your vote?
