Why we love it: We. Cant. Stop. Staring. This is an easy, stunning must-do for a bed (or two) at a beach or lake house.

What you need: Tape measure; carpenter’s level; wooden plank screws; drill; vintage oars; and mounting brackets.

How to make it: Determine the desired dimensions of the wooden plank, and cut. Line up the oars in the position of your choosing, with the handle center on the wooden plank. Secure the oars into place, screwing them down one by one. Install the brackets, and mount to the wall behind the bed.
