Boats Make Better Accessories

16 Feb

I’d like to take a minute to explain the title of this blog “Boats Make Better Accessories”. For the last month, I have been studying to get my boating education certificate.  I have owned a boat ( by marriage ) for the last 6 years and have enjoyed many a days out on the lake, lazily soaking in the sun while my husband drives me around. I started feeling guilty about the fact that my husband can never relax since he’s been doing all the driving and decided to get my boating certificate so I could drive as well.  What started out as a nice gesture, has turned into a nightmare. I no longer imagine the picturesque scenery, or the warm sun beating in my face, and wind in my hair when I think about boats. I now imagine – I take that back – I now have NIGHTMARES about what color buoys mean what, and how many toots of the horn mean I can pass an on coming boat on what side, or how many VDS I’m required to have. After all this studying, I’m not even going to want to drive the damn boat. So, back to the title of this post, I’ve decided that Boats Make Better Accessories.  And I can prove it. Just look at this Canoe With Wine Rack.  Looking at this canoe on my wall, and sipping a glass of wine sound much better than going to drive a boat ( because you did know that canoes count as real boats and you can not drive while drinking your wine ).

OR lastly, you can make a perfectly good table from your boat:

Chatham Run Canoe Cocktail Table

This unique table is a bold accent for your rustic home- and definitely worthy of the Woolrich name! The stark lines of the legs of this piece mimics the natural design and build of early-American frontier designs. The bold accent of the faux-bark canoe perched in the center of this piece adds a fun decorating element – fill it with seasonal accents that can be seen though the clear glass top, or use as a storage space for blankets and pillows. The sturdy all-aluminum frame the piece is built upon is sure to keep its shape while still being movable. This piece is a wonderful accent piece that will work outside of the Chatham Run collection.

Dimensions: 54″ W x 26″ D x 20″ H Materials: All-Aluminum frame, faux-bark canoe accent, glass table top. Cleaning and Care: While this is an outdoor piece, please keep under a covered area, such as a patio or awning. Direct sunlight and rain will fade and deteriorate product faster than intended. Clean wicker by vacuuming off dust and debris, and wipe with damp cloth.

Oh, and if anyone cares, I did pass the boating test. Maybe by summer I’ll be up to boating for real instead of enjoying it as furniture and accessories!
