Reclaimed Wood Wall Shelf + Vintage Railroad Date Nail Coat Rack - $200
This wall shelf has been hand-crafted from planks of reclaimed shipping pallet wood. Each plank was sanded, stained, and sealed in an effort to accentuate the natural beauty of the wood grain and knots. The brackets are made from solid cast iron. This shelf measures 10"D x 34"W. The width is customizable. The coat rack beneath the shelf features five steel railroad date nails of assorted numbers. The number stamped on the nail heads indicates the year that it was made. A "56" for example, would indicate the nail was manufactured in 1956. Historically, nail heads were driven into railroad ties for record keeping purposes. The shelf and the coat rack can be sold as a pair, or individually. The shelf itself is $200. The coat rack itself is $100. If purchased together, the ensemble is $250.
