Treasuring Hunting - Boat Oars

We hit a yard sale a few weeks back and walked away with some great items. These boat oars will eventually hang in the boys room along with this old oil painting of a sail boat. The boys headboards are black so we plan to paint the frame black as well. Mike spotted these and we picked them up for $5.
The paint is super chippy from all the years in the water. The patina showing through at the end of the paddle shows the age of the oars.
We are looking forward to the weekend and finishing up a few projects. The fall weather is setting in and our days are beautiful with sun and mild temperatures and our nights are chilly. I hope we can enjoy some more weeks of fall before winter hits.


Happy Friday.

I just saw a book by Cy deCosse where
they used oars for the curtain rods. Left the hardware on and all for that authentic look
