Speaking of Pinterest 'n all,
I pinned this
(as far as I could find, original source is here)
the other day, and I couldn't get it out of my head. Olive it. Must. . .have. . .wooden flag thingy. . .
I can be kind of obsessive about stuff.
Apparently, that flag up there is made out of a pallet, yo. But I instantly knew a very cheap and easy way to make this mine.
Cedar fence posts, people! 97¢ each. Awesome. Already very rustic looking. 5 feet tall. No need to cut or anything. (They're in the very back of the outdoor garden section at Lowe's. Alllll the way back. You're welcome.)
So, do line of sight these bad boys for the straightest posts you can find. I spent my time looking for non-water damaged ones, and I came home with a seriously twisted board.
And I was mad. Mad. Mad enough to hand out atomic wedgies right and left, mad.
So anywho, once you've picked your boards, go ahead and smell them. Because cedar is a wonderful smell. Isn't it? Of course it is.
So, half got red spray paint and half white.
Used nails this time because nails are just more rustic. Put a board along the top, middle, and bottom and nailed each board down.
Can I just take this moment to say how refreshed I'm feeling to do a simple and fun project that doesn't make me wanna bang my head against the wall?
I am so glad to do a simple and fun project that doesn't make me wanna bang my head against the wall. I feel refreshed.
my stars were a stamp a friend let me borrow.
Now, no one give me crap about the correctness of this flag-thingy mabobber. It's not a real flag. It's a decoration.
Thanks for listening.
A long visit with Mr. Sander,
and I have no idea where I'm gonna put it. But that's okay. I really, really like it. Score.
