The coolest part of the yellow room are the boat propellers I hung. My dad had his own shop called, Sterling Propeller, where he repaired boat propellers. When I was younger I asked for a propeller and he gave me a small white one that I hung on to. It’s the one you see on the shelf with the buoys currently in the Yellow Room. But as we were helping my parents move, I came across two big, silver propellers of my dad’s. I knew then, I wanted to incorporate them into the room.
I originally was just going to hang the propellers on the wall by themselves, but Mom had a good suggestion… frame them. My first thought was how funny it would look. But I found shadowbox frames that would work. They are 12 inch square frames that have a black cloth back to it.
