Decorating with Paddles and Oars

Hello my friends:  I'm so glad you are visiting me, how was your 4th. hope you enjoyed family and good food, including fireworks.
Here in Boston we enjoyed the family, barbecue, marshmellows, pies, and the Boston Pops, and of course the sing along, and the fireworks.
It was a night to remember, makes you feel proud of our troops, and America.

Back to our routines, I thought today I would give my old paddles and oars a fresh coat of paint.  But before that I needed a bit of inspiration.
Here are some ideas, usually I put my in our family room and study, but I'm thinking bedroom, what do you think. Check the inspiration pictures and tell me in the comments session ( I love to hear from you) give me some new ideas please. I read all comments and I answered them.

Great pictures! I love using oars too and I think they are very romantic and unexpected in the bedroom. I have one above the t.v. in my living room and love it there too.
