My Uncle would say to me……”Maila a tree is never dead”

I’ve been told Im an “old soul” and perhaps this explains it. Well, as a lover of arty furniture, I frequently walk into those exclusive furniture and decor stores and this other day I saw this bench made from this old wood and had black metal legs. I set on it…….flipped the tag and it had a five digit price tag. Way over what I could afford 🙂

Been collecting some old wood for some time now…….some dating back to the 70s when they first were used. The wood is a selected collection from the old rail tracks (sleepers) which were build across the country about 40 and 50 years ago. Every single one of them with wrinkles beautifully carved by time. After some treating and polishing, Yesterday I finally completed her…….by giving her the mid century legs. I couldn’t help it but ask her….”but how old are you though”…….She then replied in that matured voice and said……..”You can count my wrinkles”…….:-)
Im not yet sure if id leave her as a bench or tv stand.


I still have some energy to customize about 5 more, so if you would like to own one do place an order……Starting at R6500…….(2000 x 250)
