Reclaimed Railway Ties

Reclaimed railway ties. What do you do with those?

Well…

Have you seen a table and chair set like this lately?

I love this set. It has such a presence. It makes me feel like I want to take a seat and be part of the conversation going on around the table. How about you?

And when the conversation is finished…

Can’t you just picture retiring to another room where this console table backs something a little more comfortable to relax in?

Maybe you will have a few notes to jot down from the lively conversation that just ended.

Can you picture yourself sitting up to this desk to do that?

And if you needed to pull one of your special edition books…

How would you like to pull it off a shelf from this bookcase? I SO want this bookcase, but maybe x3 or x4 of them!

At the end of the night, when it’s time to tie things up ;-)…

Do you think coats and hats might be retrieved from this rack?

Would you like to go for a stroll out to your garden…

And have a seat to get lost in your thoughts? I know I would…

There is so much history connected to the railway, its roots winding and bending far and beyond. And to have a décor piece made from railway ties is to reconnect with a time that was, but that still lingers on.

I’m seriously trying to figure out how to make those bookshelves magically appear on my doorstep! How about you? Would you like to have something made from reclaimed railway ties?

It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!

    I also love that table. The only thing is, I love comfy chairs and I know I’d have some bruises from these chairs and table… I’m so clumsy!!!! 🙂

    Have a Gorgeous day!

    1. I agree – the chairs don’t invite you to sit and stay for a while, that’s for sure. But I just love the look of the set. I don’t think they would make the cut for a dining room, but maybe a breakfast nook…

      I hope your day is filled with sunshine and great moments!

  2. I’ve been really keen on using railroad ties for a bunch of interior details and furniture. However I am put off by the fact that they are mostly chemically treated with creotose. I can’t seem to find any resource online regarding their use for interior spaces.

    Could you possible enlighten me on this?

    Thanks,

  3. Beautiful! But… Are there any dangers with creosote? How do you remove, treat, and seal the ties so that they are safe for your family?
