One of my fondest memories of my dad was of him water skiing. I took one of his old skis and I'm using it as a shelf. I also found an old photograph that I had taken of him skiing and set it on the shelf. I really miss him.
Look! Our company, Orphaned Objects, rescued these vintage wooden water skis, refurbed them and transformed them into shelves. On sale at Etsy for 150$ today. (Collectible Skis alone valued on Ebay for 170$)
Rustic oar picture hanger... Old worn out wooden oar with hooks and rustic picture frames. Colors textures work well with rustic or nautical decor! Still trying to figure out if I want to paint or stain the oar, or keep it natural?
