When we bought our house in Florida I wanted to try not to ‘junk up’ the area above my cabinets and instead collect some nautical things over time to get the look I wanted. I haven’t really found many things here that would work though. I need to go to the Gulf Coast and look through some old shops there. But I did finally add something this week!
(it looks like the top right hand corner is too high but it’s not….remember I am taking the photo from down below and not level with the painting)
It’s exactly what I had ‘pictured’ for this spot and it was a great price!
I even had my hubby guess and he guessed exactly right….well, almost. He guessed $10 and that’s what the tag said. But it was 60% off and then I got another little discount for being a regular shopper.
I paid a total of $3 and some change!!!
Now hubby just needed to figure out a way to hang it OVER a junction box.
He used a coat hook with a hose clamp to keep the wire from slipping down.
And he did a great job! He has long arms! Thanks honey! (I stood in the living room looking over a wall for this photo)
I’ve made a little start with the ship, a basket of shells and some seagulls flying overhead!
I’m joining Thrifty Things Friday!

Do you like nautical style décor?
I live in Florida so it’s very popular here!
