Creating a Focal Point on Tabletops
We have now reached Day 5 of 31 Days of Tabletop Decorating. Being intentional about our decorating helps keep order and gives meaning to our rooms. One of the rules we discussed on Day 3 is to have a focal point. Today’s focal point is the window in 007’s man-cave.
As usual, I begin with an empty canvas/tabletop. However, the true focal point of this post is what goes on this table.
This sailboat was a gift to 007 for our 33rd anniversary. After a recent visit to Charleston, SC where we toured homes in the Historic District, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it when we returned home. It would become the focal point of his mancave in the front window of our home.
I went shopping in my house and found this console table that was small, but the perfect fit for this sailboat.
I used a small red stool as another layer to this vignette. Gold candlesticks with battery-operated candles add light and dimension to the console with sailboat.
Function meets masculinity here. This leather magazine holder with brass nails and buckle detail was a client purchase a few years ago. When it didn’t fit their needs, I was so excited! Instead of returning it for cash back, it found a place in 007’s man-cave. It’s the perfect home to Sports Illustrated and Wine Spectator!
It was our goal to create a space in this room that reminds us of sea breezes, sand between our toes and days spent on the water here in south Alabama.
We’re getting there!
