Wood Paddle Makeover

I'm in the beginning stages of a room makeover, a bedroom makeover for two of my boys.  We live in a small 3 bedroom lake home - and with another baby boy on the way, we need to make room for our newest family addition.  Two of my boys will be 'bunking' up - and my pregnant self has been nesting all over again.  I want to create a really special, shared bedroom space, and my how the creative juices have been a flowin' lately!  My vision consists of white planked cottage style walls, navy and white bedding, nautical decor and painted furniture.  We'll see how it all comes together - I plan to post updates along the way! 

We're still more than a few weeks out for some of the major changes, but here is one quick project I tackled this weekend.  We had a wood paddle that wasn't being used so I decided to spruce it up a bit. I'm a big fan of red and white lately - so I painted and distressed it in those colors.  I think it will make a darling wall accent piece for their new bedroom.

I'm happy with how it turned out!


  1. I love this paddle. It is gorgeous. I've done some for our kitchen and they make nice bedroom decorations. Can't wait to see how the boys' room turns out. Congratulations on your upcoming arrival. x

  2. Great job on the paddle! I have three boys myself! Congratulations on your soon to arrive baby boy! They are the best!
