A Nautical Mantel

Living near the water, a nautical mantel is a given....

with a little bit of rusty things thrown in for good measure...

  4. Very nice mantel! I love love the old rusty wheel you have. I hunted for ones exactly like this but couldn't find a set so had to antique my own for a coffee table I was making. Here is what I ended up with.
