Great Nautical Style with Cleats

We’ve already admitted to a bit of a Pinterest addiction so we thought we’d share one of the latest trends we’ve seen on the site. We’ve noticed a strong trend in nautical decor and the trend of using boat cleats inside the home. Re-purposing items in innovative ways is a great way to show your creativity and make your home uniquely yours.


 Using cleats as dresser or trundle bed handles is an easy way to incorporate some personality and style to your home. Cleats are cheap and easy to instal so you get a lot of bang for your buck.

We love when something is so simple and looks so great! Use cleats for hanging hand towels and other fun items in the bathroom or any other room in the house. Super idea for a boy’s room or ship shape mud room!

 Now here is a creative sleeping solution! This fun beach house bunk reminds us of a berth on a ship. Note how large cleats are holding the roping at the top of the wall. This idea would be great for holding up shelving as well.
