Repurposed Antique French Side Rails

If you have meet me at a show, you have seen these incredible finds that have been repurposed.  Originally, they were the side rails that would hold the headboards and footboards of a bed together. They are imported from France and close to 100 years old.  Solid wood!  So many have such interesting architectural detail, I had to find a way to repurpose them to give them a new life!

I have come up with several saying and quotes that work perfect on these pieces, as well as some that have had design or knobs added.  If you see a saying you love, let me know.  I do them one at a time and can customize just for you!  Because of the size of some (up to 75 inches) , they are available for pickup at my Studio.  Please allow up to 2 weeks if I don’t have the perfect one in stock for you!  Links to purchase them are listed below.

Thanks for looking!

What is a girl to do when she stumbles upon an old barn that has these incredible architectural  beauties in it?  Well, she makes an offer to buy them all!  Then, puts on the creative hat to figure out what to do with them! Read more about them in my blog.

Once serving as the pieces that held the headboards and footboards of a bed together, these pieces are getting a much deserved new life!  Each piece is solid wood and are up to 75 inches long.  I carefully repurpose each one individually.  Below are photos of ones I have done in the past as well as ones I  currently have ready for your home!  Please contact me if you would like one or need a custom one made.

Some of the antique rails I come across are in great shape and the wood on them is unbelievable beautiful!  I carefully bring out the natural patina of the piece.

You can purchase them from my online store.  I try to keep many styles in inventory. Each one is done individually. I can do custom orders based on my current inventory of unfinished rails. If you see one you like, let me know and I would be happy to customize one for you. Please allow 2 – 3 weeks. Because of the size and weight of these, I ask they be picked up at my studio located in Simonton based on a mutually agreed upon time.  If you insist on having one, please contact me for a shipping quote.
