Casa Quickie: Use an Oar as a Curtain Road

In an effort to stay within budget, and to cut back on consumerism, sometimes you gotta work with what your momma gave ya . . . or what you already own. When stars align, sometimes the furnishing that's a hand-me-down, a street find, or the like, is the perfect one for your digs. The owners of a beach shack on the Isle of Wight in the UK made the most of an old oar by using it as a curtain rod. In most homes, a paddling device used to hold up curtain panels would look out of place to say the least. But here, it's charming and a bit kitschy, and it has the worn-in, well-loved style that every beachside home should have. Have you used any unusual items as a curtain rod in your home?

The boat ore is a really nice touch against the white walls.

I like the idea of tree branches, but the way the oar is so unbalanced bothers me. I don't need everything to be symmetrical, but this seems a little unnatural.

I love using tree branches as curtain rods, either natural or painted white. Works best with tab or tie-top panels.

If I had a lake or beach house, I would totally use this idea.
