Set Sail

When we first moved into our new house, we had some pretty gnarly wall-paper borders to deal with. (TIP: Fabric softener is an amazing wallpaper remover agent- you just sponge it on, and the wallpaper peels right off)! We had to do this for the office (Spiderman) and the spare bathroom. Our spare bedroom had a boat themed border, and being from the maritimes and hoping to one day have a large nautical themed bathroom; I decided to work with it:)

The shelf was a yard sale find, the blocks came from Aberfoyle Antique Market

The boat tote is from LL Bean clearance, the pressback was purchased from a friend, and the oars came from a cute antique shop in an church in Niagara on the Lake 

I've had this canoe shelf for years, came from a Duck's Unlimited auction. Lantern is from Ikea, brass anchor is from an antique shop in Sauble Beach. I now also have a vintage fisherprice radio that plays row row your boat on this shelf, gifted from a friend!

The full room, all the linens I had on hand. The mat is from Ikea, the point blanket was a Christie Antique show find (steal at $15), and the red bedside table came from goodwill.
