Ships Wheel Coffee Table

This is sitting in storage. It’s a very scary coffee table. I refused to move in here unless it was taken down to the basement. It was a constant source of tension between my Father in-law and myself.

    This is so not what I’d have in my house either but it’s so quintessentially Kitsch! Ships wheels have so many purposes. I understand they’re necessary to steer ships but I like this use of them far better.

    Thank you for feeling my pain on some levels. It was brutal having to look at this almost a year and a half! Def kitsch tho and in the basement it sits, unless I paint it purple or something equally as fabulous!

    I remember a friend of mine having one of these in their rec-room when I was a kid. It was chiefly good for painfully impaling your knees while sitting down to watch TV or have a snack.

    Hey Nessa….exactly. It was starting to look as if Ernie beat me all the time about the legs! lol. It gathers things now as it sits in the basement! Yay!
