3rd Ave Shore
I think there’s nothing funkier than mounting a surfboard on your wall as a piece of art. Except for being a lifetime renter, I’m always scared to put holes in my wall or having to deal with installing and re-installing the heavy board with every move. 3rd Ave Shore’s vinyl design art solves this problem — without paint, stencils or a mess. The company designs their decals to last, whether you choose to transform an indoor or outdoor living space. This Tiki-inspired surfboard decal is $78. http://3rdaveshore.blogspot.com
