Have you got one or more boat oars lying around from some old boat in your garage or dock? If yes, you can use them to decorate your home in different ways. Here are some fun ways to recycle old boat oars.
A Towel Rack
You can use a single boat oar to make an indoor bathroom or an outdoor towel rack by the poolside. To add some fun to the outdoor towel rack, you can hang the boat oar with ropes.
An Outdoor Lantern Post
If you love the feel of candles as the evening rolls in, you can hang them in your garden or patio with a boat oar lantern post. Just fix the boat oar in the ground or in a mud filled planter. Then fix a hook for hanging a lantern on the oar. You can also go flame-less by hanging a solar lamp.
Coastal Wall Art
Wooden oars when painted and hung on walls make a stunning coastal themed wall art. Embellish them further with twine details.
A Bed Headboard
A Nautical Curtain Rod
If you are designing a nautical themed room for your kids, you can consider hanging a vintage canoe paddle instead of a curtain rod.
A Picture Hanger
An Entryway Coat Rack
A Canoe Oar Floor Lamp
If your staircase needs a new balustrade, you can incorporate boat oars into it for a nautical inspired decor feature.
A Room Divider
You can make a fabulous room divider by fastening together boat oars into a suspended wooden screen.
