Come Sail Away…

Remember last week how I was telling you about my love for Etsy? Well in addition to the gallery wall I’m SLOWLY acquiring prints for, I’m also focusing on – you guessed it – a nautical themed bathroom!

I think this is my way of saying I miss living in my sorority house. Just kidding. 🙂 There’s something to be said about being an adult and having your own bedroom and TV, and stuff you miss out on when you live with 30+ other females.

So I’ve taken to (mainly) Etsy and Pinterest again to find some cute anchor/sailor knick knacks I can add to the newly-remodeled bathroom (an entire post on those renovations coming to the blog very soon), and primarily the shelves we’ve added.


Here’s what I have in mind so far (all purchases were okay’d by Jeff too!):

Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions to make my concept better. If you come across any cute anchor ANYTHING send it my way.

P.S. for any guys out there reading this, I promise I’ve run everything by Jeff. Turns out he’s not as invested in the decorative touches as I am. 😉


Oh hey Etsy, I Kind of Love you…


If only I had an infinite amount of money, right? I’m fairly certain that whole ‘never running out of money’ thing comes at age 27. 😉

And no, this is unfortunately not a sponsored post with any type of giveaway (I think I need a few more readers first), but don’t let that stop you from reading!

Anyway, as of late I feel like all I’m ever spending my money on is cute home knick knacks or chotchkies (don’t worry Mom, I’m still paying my bills too). Jeff handles all the building, painting, caulking, etc, and I focus more on the home decor shopping. That’s fair, right? 😉

Two rooms in the house have been my main focus, the bathroom and living room.

First up, the living room, or more specifically a “where we’ve lived” gallery wall.

A quick note: When I’ve ordered prints I’ve often changed text or background colors to better suit my color scheme. So the prints you see here are the original ones, but once the gallery wall goes up (in a month or two) I’ll show you how I tailored many of these to fit my needs.

Let me know what you think. Any creative ideas or helpful tips are always appreciated.

And for the record, I blame all of this on Pinterest (you can follow me, here)! I just can’t help myself when I find something cute.

Next week, I’ll show you what I’ve ordered from Etsy to help complete the bathroom. I think it’s pretty darn cute. (Hint: it might have something to do with me being a lovely Delta Gamma in college.)
