Lightbulb nautical

everyone has wonderful ideas.
i also saw that room by room episode.
the tv cabinet would be easy to make with basic carpentry skills or take a armoire or corner cabinet and modify. the wood twisted rope molding really added to the flavor of nautical. also use rope to wrap around table legs for a nautical flavor(nail and glue securely to legs and edges).also lots of blue color adds feel .
one quick thought though. be very careful with that rope netting.
it can be a serious hanging hazard for kids and pets.
my friend had it hanging from his ceiling in a corner above the tv and attached starfish , shells, driftwood etc. it looked great _BUT he came home one day and found his cat HUNG to death by the netting . the poor cat climbed up there and fell through a hoop.
granted- kids might be more lucky cause of their weight-but still be careful with any of this loose netting or rope too. it probably can be tempting to a child to try to climb into it or swing from it.

i also remember seeing a christopher lowell show where they decorated a childs room with nautical theme. it had some great ideas that you can use for adult rooms also.
good luck!!!
sincerely-sheila ann anderson
