A few weeks ago I happened to be at work and went out the back door to toss something into the dumpster. As I was headed back in I noticed something that caught my eye.
Aren't they lovely ;-)?
Piles of pallets that have probably been sitting there for years.
Normally I wouldn't have given them a second glance, but on this particular day the light bulb went on and the Fourth of July was coming up.
After a trip to Home Depot for red, white and blue paint, I set up a temporary painting table in a spare office and got to work.
I was happy to find a stencil at Hobby Lobby that had a long row of stars. So much easier than doing them one at a time. I couldn't quite fit in 50 of them, but as you can see I also couldn't fit in 13 stripes. To borrow a phrase from Vee in this post , I guess I just used a bit of "creative license".
We've had a super busy couple of days around here, but now things are slowing down and I hope to be by to see what you all have been up to.
