Dan and I have lived in our humble little home for almost six years now. And for the past six years we've spent the majority of our evenings outside on our patio. But somehow it took us six years to realize that there is a very large, obnoxiously bare area of siding on our house that is just plain boring to look at. So, we decided to change that. Of course, Dan wanted something he could build (he's so manly like that) and I wanted something that I wouldn't have to pay for. So we came up with the perfect solution. A free pallet. Free!
So first you take the pallet and remove all those boards and move them close together so there are no longer gaps between the boards.
This was Dan's job.
Sherman's job was to chew on the extra pieces of wood that his dad cut off from the ends of the pallet.
And of course, my job was to take pictures.
And drink lemonade.
Once the pallet is assembled how you like, just grab your favorite color of paint and go crazy. This was also Dan's job. I get out of everything now by saying "but it might be bad for the baby". Muhahaha.
Then you can be creative and hang something fun on your colorful pallet. We chose this funny little angler fish that we found here on Etsy.
Kind of scary. Kind of cute. Kind of weird.
I kind of love it.
