I’ve been on a hunt for something to fill the wall space in Taylor’s bedroom at the cabin. It’s a large space, both vertically and horizontally. Taking a water direction for the décor seemed to make sense, for obvious reasons, but most of the nautical themed décor for kids’ rooms (at least this year) seemed to have images of sharks. I have vivid memories from when I was a kid, thinking there were sharks in the lake. I could not understand that although sunnies may nip at your toes in a Minnesota lake, nothing is going to take off a leg. Clearly, I watched Jaws at too young an age.
I kept coming back to oars or paddles. There are some super cute ones available this year, but I needed a fair number to cover the space and needed them relatively quickly (design needs to be efficient when dealing with a short Minnesota summer). If DIY is not your thing, check out these cute options from Pottery Barn.
