I've had these old oars sitting in the garage for the last few years. I brought them down from the cottage, not knowing where I would use them, but I think they have finally found a home on the back porch.
We sanded them down this weekend (even Chloe got some time with the sander) but the wood beneath is not very attractive so I think I'll paint them or give them a weathered look. I don't want the porch to look overly coastal so I searched out a few inspiration pics with oars as decor.

Aren't they so fun? You definitely could do a DIY version of this. What would you do - weathered or painted?
