How I Decorated Our New Sailboat!

7 Aug

My husband has always fashioned himself to be a boatin’, sea lovin’, nautical type, even though we never actually ever owned a boat before, however we have walked down countless marina docks over the years under the pretense that we were boat owners (does that count?).  About a month ago,  I found the little beauty above for a major steal,  so I snapped it up for him in honor of our 17th wedding anniversary!

She’s  a cool little vintage ’75  Oday sailboat and she’s still got plenty of life in her! All she needed was a little spit and polish to cozy her up a bit. So here’s what I did….


Vintage Sailor and Siren, Octopus,  turquoise, red stripe, blue, green

Carpe diem pillows clearance section Hobby Lobby-$6
Random pillows from clearance section Hobby Lobby-$6
Fabric-Hobby Lobby
Turquoise mirror Hobby Lobby -$19.99

I found an octopus image online and printed it off on transfer paper. I heat pressed it on the red striped fabric.

Who doesn’t love cold beer?

Got this great turquoise softy guy blanket for $14.99 from Tuesday Morning for those cold fall sails!

Nautical looking basket that I got at Tuesday Morning for 7 bucks and the (H) from Hobby Lobby for a couple of bucks. Hot glued it on, instant cell phone, keys, misc basket for the counter.

Myself and the hubs on our maiden voyage!

We don’t yet have a name for the ‘ole gal yet, any suggestions?
