Being able to take one object and turn it into something else is practically a superpower. This is why we’re a huge fan of independent e-commerce sites like Etsy, who this week, presented a series of awards for originality and innovation.
To our delight, Calgarian trio Adrian Pool, Martinus Pool, and Anne Tranholm (Adrianmartinus), actually won the $15,000 US grand prize; but we bet that you’ll never guess who the deciding vote came from!
Etsy trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson and the Hollywood icon Drew freaking Barrymore voted for the Albertan group after seeing their out-of-this-world store, which featured items like jewelry, artwork, and home decor made out of recycled skateboards.
The item that really sealed the deal though? a $5,500 CDN mid-century modern style credenza.
“This piece is so beautiful and at first glance, you would never know that it’s actually made out of recycled skateboards — how cool is that?” Barrymore said in a release.
If you’d like to see their store for yourself, check out their page here, heck – maybe even consider buying the fancy Adrianmartinus credenza for yourself.
Honestly, what’s fancier than a credenza? Nothing, that’s what! Very ‘grown-up chic’
