"Maritime Memories" Child's Table and Chairs Set

This wonderful solid wood set was picked up at a second-hand shop, and given a new lease on life. My own memories of an ocean side cottage in Nova Scotia gave me the inspiration for the design. Seagulls wheel above a calm ocean and a shoreline filled with ocean treasures of shells, sand dollars, crabs, and starfish. Seaweed rises up all sides of the legs from a sandy bottom.
