By far my FAVORITE home accent is our shark head, mounted in our entry way. I love how it stares at me with its googly eyes (yes, we added the googly eyes) while I’m working. And I love it even more when it sneaks up on unsuspecting guests.
As many of you already know, my husband was attacked by a shark a few years ago, so we have been gifted TONS of shark stuff. It’s gotten to the point where Aaron had to put a ban on shark products in our home. But that doesn’t mean I can’t virtually shop for shark-tastic home finds. (Is “put a fin on it” the new “put a tentacle on it“?
All of you shark lovers who don’t have a shark ban in action in your households better hide your wallets, because this stuff is going to seriously tempt you.
Dun dun, dun dun, dundundundundundun…

Comments on Does your home decor need more bite? Put a shark on it!
UM??!??? Sharks are about to be my new owls. At least till I get the same Ban.
On another note, I had no idea about the shark attack! I’m glad he’s okay.
Oh yeah, and I’m totally getting that whale shark.
Girl, if you get that whale shark you will be my HERO!!!
I lurrrrve the pet bed. I didn’t know your husband was bitten by a shark, Megan! WOAH!
Omigod I *love* the whale shark decal… that is so freaking cool.
And holy cow about your husband!! I was looking through pics and my son happened to look over and had a million questions. Thank goodness he was okay after it all!
People look at me funny when I burst into singing “If you like it, then you should have put a shark on it.”
Not that I would have found that out today, or anything like that.
HA! That just made my day.
This isn’t home decor, but I got this shirt for my fiancé because he LOVES Jaws. And because the t-shirt rocks. 😛
I don’t have a whale shark decal, but we’re San Jose natives, so I do have a four by four foot logo of the San Jose Sharks hockey team in my living room. For those who don’t know, it’s a big, black shark torso biting through a hockey stick. It rules.
Just having celebrated my 34th birthday yesterday (with gift cards! YESS!), I’ve been an avid shark fanatic since 12 years old. Seeing this post has been the greatest post-birthday EVER! In addition to the framed Chris Fallows (aka Air Jaws) prints I have in my living room walls, I can not wait to use my gift cards on the fan-jaws-tastic things on this post! Thank you. I love you.
Aisha, your comment just made me feel… wait for it… fin-tastic!
Cool photos. I love it. 🙂
WHALE SHARK FTW!!!!!!!!!!
I have a fauxidermied (it works if you mispronounce “faux”) shark and dolphin in my bathroom! I got the stuffed animals at a yard sale, cut off the heads, and hotglued them to wooden plaques from Michael’s. They look AWESOME and guests always laugh on their first trip to the bathroom.
We have also fauxidermied a unicorn, a lion, a tiger, and a buffalo.
MEG! My girl! You MUST give me photos of those. I’m currently working on a post about fauxidermy!
Okay so your shark head is way more awesome than any of the other stuff. Where did yours come from?
We got that at a thrift store!
Where did you find the shark head?
