After I found and bought the boat rental sign, I came across this one, which I love, love, love! So cute. Oh well, I guess you can't win them all.
His big sister loves the starfish, and they were super cheap!!
This shelf was a super deal - I think my husband made it for about $10 total. He bought a piece of wood and about 6 feet of rope from Home Depot. He stained the wood with Minwax Whitewash Pickling Stain, tied a couple of knots in some rope, and voila - instant, nautical themed shelf for our little man's books!
The oar you see suspending the letters of Dominic's name was just a basic oar that we ordered from Amazon. My husband sanded it down lightly with his orbital sander, and then used Minwax Whitewash Pickling Stain to stain it a nice "weathered white." He then "distressed" it with a variety of tools - orbital sander, framing hammer, file, etc.
