Loving the Sea and Showing it Just a Little

If you adore the sea and everything about it, but live with someone who doesn't, you can still have your way. Just a little, with little things.

There's no need to go wild, plastering pictures of ocean waves and sailing ships on every wall. One will do. Just choose it carefully, and then tend to the details.

Sometimes, it's the little things that make a big difference. That's where nautical cabinet knobs and drawer pulls come in handy. They provide a special little touch for you to appreciate and enjoy. Yet, that little touch won't overwhelm your land lubber companion.

It's all about compromises.

There's something special about an old sailing vessel that appeals to just about everyone, but these are especially nice for a gentleman's desk drawers..

The anchor is a symbol

not only of the sea

but also of

steadfastness and hope

Anchors are a loved nautical symbol the world over. Seafarers and land lubbers alike seem to find positive meaning in them.

When choosing nautical drawer pulls, those with anchors on them always seem to be at the top of everyone's list.

You'll find anchor shaped pulls, as well as round and bar shaped ones with attractive anchor graphics on them. Whichever kind you choose, you're sure to have made a wise choice, due to their almost universal appeal.

Anchors ancient or new,

Anchors rusty or blue

All say to you,

"Be steadfast and true."

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.

Sailboats - Seafaring Theme for Your Coastal Décor

Sailboats are absolutely perfect as decorator touches for the home of a sailor, a sea captain, or anyone who just loves the sea. They speak to our spirit of adventure.

These knobs are perfect for a bath, or for a boy's bedroom.

They would sure look nice in a nursery, too,.

Designing Your Own Nautical Drawer Pulls

If you have even the slightest artistic bent, perhaps you'd like to try making your own nautical drawer pulls.

Start with a plain unpainted wooden pull. Choose your nautical sybmol or symbols. Anchors, ships, portholes, fish, dolphins, buoys, seahorses, mermaids, lighthouses, and seashells are things to consider.

The following video shows someone creating a brghtly colored fish knob that would be just the thing for a dresser or chest in a child's room.

Starfish Decorative Knobs - A Nice Coastal Touch

Stars in the sea, stars in the sky, there's a positive connotation to both. Wouldn't you love some starfish on your drawers?

If you have a coastal décor theme in your bath with decorative seashells, that's a great place to put a few starfish. There's a variety of types to choose from. Some are metal, and star shaped, while others are round with sea stars pictured on them. You can find round ones in several matrials, including wood or ceramic.

Watch this long legged starfish creep out of his hidey-hole and grab his dinner, then take it home. It's quite a process, this under sea version of a take out meal. And it's a pretty interesting one, too. Who knew sea stars were so interesting?

Seashells Are Another Natural Choice - Set of 4 Seashell knobs

This set of four different seashell ceramic pulls are perfect for a bath or even a bedroom - especially when you want a touch of the tropics or a reminder of your favorite beach.

Seashell drawer pulls are perfect for any nautical décor, and an especially nice touch for a little girl's mermaid inspired bedroom.

Easy peesy! Just in case you've never done it before, and are a little nervous about altering your cabinet doors and drawers, here's a little how to video for installing new cabinet and drawer pulls. Rest assured, it's not difficult, as you will see.

This video shows how to install new hardware where there was none before, and you need to drill holes.

It comes with instructions, and even includes a drill bit!

But of course, if you're simply replacing existing hardware, it's even easier. For bar shaped pulls requiring two screws, just be sure to measure the distance between the two holes. Then, purchase accordingly.

Lighthouses - The Perfect Touch for Your Nautical Bath - or Any Room

Lighthouses are probably right up there near anchors when it comes to maritime icons. They make a beautiful statement as they stand tall and solid and provide a beacon of hope piercing a stormy night. Though a large percentage of the world's lighthouses are automated now. the solitary, yet sometimes heroic keepers have nearly become a thing of the past.

But many beacons still shine, and ship captains still look to them as navigational aids.

The knobs shown here have a lovely little shoreside scene featuring a lighthouse on them. Each one is hand painted by the artist, who makes them on order. You don't find a lot of that these days!
