Functional art. Everything should serve dual purposes. Like flip flops that are bottle openers or phones that are cameras.
This piece of marine time art can also be use to hang your jacket, purse, dog leash or sea captains hat. Tie downs once used to keep boats safely moored now keep your car keys from running away and hiding.
Old school, heavy, rustic and real, displaying a weathered patina that only time being battered by the ocean can produce- this piece fits in ocean side cottage, massive summer house or your mini NYC micro apt that longs to be a boathouse.
Old salvaged boat cleats bolted to an even older piece of reclaimed hardwood - make it yours, or give it to someone you know that would appreciate it for what it is.
