Today I’m participating in an amazing Summer Celebration blog hop!

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 wooden boat oars in a funky, beachy way. Painted boat oars / boat oars leaning against the wall - So Much Better With Age

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.

I received this wave Frog Tape Shape Tape in my Haven swag bag last year and couldn’t figure out what to make with it.

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.
