Welcome to Home Sweet Home! I have shown this spot in my home before on my blog but after over 450 posts I know it is buried somewhere. This is the ledge that goes downstairs to our basement. I have had it decorated like this since we remodeled in 2008.
The basement is the teen man cave, so the nautical theme was fitting as we go down the stairs.
The teens have even added their own touch to my decor. If you look on the deck of the Mayflower here you will see Captain Jack Sparrow on the ready for any pirate adventures that may ensue.
And, what would a piratey vignette be without a pistol, some pieces of eight, and a little bit of stolen Aztec gold. Vintage pistol (Captain Jack's affects) being the inspiration here.
