Sea Blue Paddles & Oars

Vintage paddles & oars are a particularly popular item that I sell here at Coastal Vintage. I can never stock enough. There is something about paddles & oars aren't there? That connection to the water and being on the water. And they are fabulous items to display in the home - particularly a coastal home or a beach shack!

And as I find paddles and oars for the online store, some need a make-over. Keeping in with the coastal theme, all the paddles & oars I have done so far have been painted in white & blue. 

And here they are:

Old paddle painted with chalk paint, sanded to give a distressed look and waxed. Looks great doesn't it?


A paddle painted white first, then taped two rows at bottom & painted blue over the top. Took the tape off to reveal to white stripes. Looks lovely with the old lobster buoy from Maine and glass floats from Japan doesn't it?

Strapped some rope around top & it is ready to hang on the wall. 

An oar painted blue and sanded back to reveal a little of the old white paint underneath.

Blue & white stripes - I painted this pair like this to create a little contrast. They were plain pine. I think they will look great displayed opposite one another horizontal on the wall. Don't you agree? And they already have hooks and are ready to hang.

And my favourite design - the Chevron oar!

All these are available

And more will be added over the coming weeks. However, with a change of colour. Stay tuned to find out....

*All oars are painted with Annie Sloanes Chalk Paint, sanded and waxed.
