I recently re-worked a little vignette display I had in my main bathroom. I like a good nautical theme but I like the darker, scarier side of the ocean, for the most part (and I like dinosaurs so why not combine the two?) I've had this print, Bad Day On The High Sea by the amazing Brandon Bird, hanging in my bathroom for years. I love the print but thought that it needed a little updating since it was just hanging on the wall by itself looking both lonely and terrifying at the same time.
I added a small vintage, cast iron mermaid hook that I found on Etsy. Her tail is the hook! How clever is that?
Next I added a small shelf that I also found on Etsy for this project. I wanted something mid century (of course) that was small enough to fit the space and cool enough to add something special to the design.
I finished it off with a great vintage seahorse that I thrifted and another thrifted piece from my fledgling pottery collection.
And voila! A small simple update that incorporates an existing piece of artwork with vintage pieces to create an awesomely nautical themed vignette. (Even if it's only awesome in my mind, it's okay. I'm so in love with it!)
