If you follow my Pinterest board, you might have seen some pictures of oars used as decoration in bedrooms. Like this one. Super cute idea for the red and white bedroom, I thought, so when I found two lovely old oars on Craigslist for only $35, I bought them and took them home. The lady that sold them to me asked why I was buying them so late in the season. When I sheepishly admitted that I was not going to actually row with them, she laughed. 

We washed about 20 years of dirt off of them today with a mixture of PineSol and hot, hot water. Once they dry, I plan to use linseed oil to bring out the existing finish.
