I wanted to share a cute painting project on an item obtained for free! This lifeguard beach rescue boat shelf theme fits in marvelously with the decor I have going on in our little seaside bathroom.

It was originally done up in a Americana motif which doesn’t exactly match my decor, so I gave it a little paint job and now it fits in beautifully!

I wish I would have started this collection years ago, I would have a lot more bottles to show! Well I guess that gives us an excuse to make sure we revisit some of those locals huh? Hmm hubby doesn’t know it yet,… but that means a second honeymoon barefoot cruise in the future – he he
