Oar Decor Inspiration

by - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

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.

I love the simple look of these oars above - but I find it so hard to shy away from colour and pattern sometimes. These bold painted oars from Norquay Co. are also calling my name...

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