Oh, how fun! I love those driftwood boats - it's great to see them put all together. Even though it's the same concept they are all so different AND wonderful!

Have a wonderful & beachy week. :O)

I love the tiny one with the pin mast!

vicki said...

I am absolutely in LOVE - (and going to my beach next week!) These are fabulous - I cannot wait to search for the perfect piece of wood and make my own~~~. Wonderful, wonderful photos!

OMG, these driftwood sailboats are adorable!! The grouping of boats from Houzz is so great -- it's like a fleet of racing boats sailing across the mantel :-)

Thanks for following my new blog :-)

We found some driftwood pieces down at the river a couple weeks ago and I was trying to figure out what to do with them. I want to make a driftwood sailboat!! Those are so cute.
Have an awesome Monday!!

I have LOTS of driftwood I've been saving for these!!! I finally sold my house & I'm moving to Oregon, so I should have lots of time to make fun things for a while!!! Can't wait!!!

I really like these...they are rustic enough but not too much.

Erin said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these!! I loved them from the earlier post, and love them even more now. I want to make one for my home, but I don't have access to drift wood. Any pointers on where to get some good driftwood?
I saw some on ebay, but I don't feel like you really know what your getting, or if the price is crazy. Any pointers on getting some good driftwood for this project? I only need to make 1! :)

The more primitive they are, the more I like them... appeals to the child in me I suppose.

Carole said...
