Boat Furniture

As luck would have it, it appears at this point, we will escape the wrath of  Hurricane Irene .Others will not be so lucky. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of my  friends in it's path.Please be safe!.It has been 3 years since a hurricane has made landfall on the east coast , I am keeping my fingers crossed any damage will be minimal .What a week so far, an earthquake and now Irene.

My mind  went to boats this morning, so I thought I would share some peaceful images, of unique boat furniture.

Boats are almost always used as accessories in coastal and nautical decor.What about placing an actual boat in a room? I love the idea of a boat sofa or a boat swing .It  is a bit more unusual, but creative . Creating a nautical themed room for a child using a boat  frame as a bed is a great idea. or take a bath in a boat shaped bath tub. Check out these great uses of boats or boat inspired furniture.
