Beach Cottage Corner of My Den

So I have this little corner in my den.

It's cute and tiny and needed a makeover.

I have a collection of beach style items that 
I grouped together in hopes
to create a

Beach Cottage Corner

in my den.



 I added a little table, an oar 
and a couple of beachy storage boxes.
This table was originally a shabby white.
It was in my daughters room when she was
younger, she marked it up with pencil
& crayons. So to freshen it up I painted it this nice
deep tan color and now it's stylish again!



 Then I added a canvas print.


 And a lamp.


 And a few more beachy accessories.


 So here's the little corner now.











Here are a few pics with the canvas hung on the wall.
Which do you like better?





I think I like it on the wall better.



But resting on the table makes for better close up pictures.







Here are the Chip It colors.



Have a happy week!

That looks really nice! I love all things beachy. I'm embarrassed to say that I even buy old shells at estate sales. Lol! Thanks for having the link party today. :)

That's a hard call. I like the grouping when the canvas is resting on the table but I like the spacing when it is on the wall. Really, my vote is on the table. Both look great and I love how you pulled it all together. Very nice! Thanks so much for sharing.
