Today I’m participating in an amazing Summer Celebration blog hop!
Over the next three days, 20 bloggers will be sharing with you summer ideas and then on Thursday this week you will have a chance to link up your summer projects at our link party!
My summer project has been on my to do list for a looooong time now. I just needed a kick in the butt to get it done and this was the kick in the butt that I needed.
Today I’m sharing how I painted some boat oars in a funky, beachy way.
These boat oars were left behind in our previous old house. I have another set too that are much bigger. I’ve had them on our dining room wall before but I’ve always wanted to paint them.
A wave on an oar is perfect!
I taped up both sides and overlapped it on the end.
The Frog Tape is perfect to cut because it has a ruler printed on it.
Make sure to use regular Frog Tape at the end of the wave tape.
Next I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Aubusson Blue and French Linen.
First I painted on Aubusson, then French Linen, then sanded it down to reveal both colors.
I finished it off with the Clear Wax.
Looks great, right?
They look great in my son’s room!
It’s A Summer Celebration!
