Check out these great driftwood sailboats with sails made out of nautical-look fabric scraps. I think you could also use long breadbaskets as the boat bottoms and put the bread for your buffet in them!
what i love here, is the wood pit next to the fireplace. i have an old bookshelf directly next to my fireplace that i would love to relocate to the living room. this is a great idea to replace the bookshelf.
