Piddlin’ Decor | Boat Oars

‘pressed while singing “Row row row your boat…” (tongue in cheek)

These are one of my all-time-favorites-buy-whenever-you-see-them kind of piddlin’ finds!

Boat oars or paddles are classic antiques to have around the home + porch…below are a few glimpses of the two we have at our nest (an unmatched pair-which adds to the charm in my opinion) as well as a few fun ideas from around the web!

I have always sat these oars together for some added texture + interest in an otherwise boring corner of my home, but I always dream about how I may end up using these in a myriad of other ways!  lf baby no. 2 is a boy, I can very easily see them in his room from day one to hold curtains, as I have always wanted to use them for this type of DIY:

…on second thought, these would certainly be handy in case we find ourselves navigating through “Waterworld” this weekend!  I kid–!  Though, we will be hunkering down for a good old fashioned hurricane party this weekend.

This is a culture my husband + I have grown up with for the past three decades so we are highly accustomed to protocols and precautions of being in a hurricane’s path.  This is not to say we are in some way exempt from the dangers and warnings, rather we have been a part of making decisions like these for sometime and know what sort of safety hazards + damage timeline we are preparing to see.  We have family in town–also staying–if things go from bad to worse and we need reinforcements, so don’t anyone worry about us for a second.

So for now, happy decorating!
