Brass cleats from boats can become the perfect beach cottage home accent. Use for book ends, wall hooks or art projects; the possibilities are endless. We have a few just sitting on our beach cottage library shelves; however we’re inspired to use them somewhere else now….hmmmm. Maybe wall hooks in the master bath renovation?
“I’ll admit I couldn’t tell you the difference between starboard and port side, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a hint of nautical flair. Adding some boat-inspired hardware to a home is an easy and inexpensive way to reference the salty smell of seaside air along with memories of summer days spent on the water. And it’s more unexpected (and far less heavy-handed) than a room swathed in nautical flags, anchor motifs and the like.”
…and our sponsor, The Coastal Collection, offers a sepia-tone collection of boat cleats, ropes and other nautical artwork.
