Direct Sales Planner Giveaway!!!

I'm not OCD clean.  My house normally needs to be dusted and it's very likely there's a little clutter in every corner.  I'm ok with that.  Always have been.  What I'm not ok with?  Messy lists. Of any kind.  

***Enters confessional...***

I'm an OCD list maker.  
I'm one of those...

I like to make lists.  I don't like if I make a mistake while making my lists.  I'll have to start over.  And, don't write on MY list, please. 

I'm one of those...

I keep an overly busy schedule on most days.  And, I constantly worry about forgetting someone or something...between working a full time 40 hour a week job, selling Thirty-One, keeping up with this little ol' blog, and being a Mama and Wife! 

My OCD list making skills help me overcome that fear! But...I wasn't completely satisfied until about a week ago when I met my new best friend, Jennifer from the The PolkaDot Posie!

DIY Chevron Pallet Flag

Better late than never???
Good thing the American Flag is ALWAYS in season, right!? 
Can I get an amen?

If you're following along on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you got a sneak peak!  Charlie and I whipped this up the week of 4th of July to help give the front door a little patriotic flare!  Chevron, Americana flare that is!

A couple years ago, a friend took down their old fence and called us to haul it off!  They knew we'd put it to good use!  That old fence has been used many of times so far and I've got big plans for it in the future, too! Thanks Mark & Kathy! :) 

Let's get right to it….

You don't need an old fence to make your own Chevron Pallet Flag.  Just some scrap wood, an old pallet, or even new lumber if you can't get your hands on some used, rustic goodness!

Assemble yourself a cute little pallet.  We just used more scrap wood on the back, a little wood glue and some staples.  You could even use nails.  The more rustic and beat up the better!

Then, I sloppily spray painted my pallet red.  I didn't want it to be perfect and I didn't want it to completely cover.  I wanted the worn look. 

I painted a small square blue. Again, don't worry about being neat and tidy with it.  We're gonna sand this thing down even more before we're done!  

Unless you like things neat and tidy…and in that case, you're probably on the wrong site anyways…

I used some scrap card stock paper, a ruler and a pencil to draw a chevron pattern stencil.

I traced my stencil directly onto my pallet and painted between the lines with white paint. 

Then….some cute little hand drawn stars.

Now, the fun part…

Sand the crap out of it…

I used a small sanding block. 
However, if it hadn't been 9:00…
And, if my kids weren't asleep…
And, if my electric sander weren't in the shed…
And, if I weren't scared of the dark…

I totally would have used my electric sander!
My arms would have appreciated it.  

A little burlap makes everything better…

I love how it turned out and plan to leave it up ….until Christmas probably! 

What do y'all think???

Have you ever made a pallet flag?  We'd love to see your projects!  Share with us on Facebook!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have an amazing week!

Sneak Peek

Hey Y'all……Charlie here again.  Where has summer gone? It seems like yesterday we were at the hospital waiting on Baby Guthrie to make her appearance; and that was in April. Well, like most families during the summer months we have been running non stop. From birthday parties, BBQ's and summer loving activities we are always on the go. I was just telling Emily that for about a week straight I think I ate nothing but hot dogs and hamburgers. Although, we have been mighty busy, we still managed to get some projects finished up around the house. If you follow along with us on Facebook you saw that we also survived a flood from the creek behind the house!  I'm going to go ahead and leak a few pictures of what we've done and challenge Em to share the details of each project in the following weeks.

A sure sign of summer is a tractor in the field mowing hay. With the extremely wet summer we've had, our neighbor is finally able to cut hay today.

Speaking of a wet summer, here are a few pics of the the damage the creek did when it decided to flood. 

Yea…Not Cool!!! We lost 7 chickens and had a lot of wet and muddy tools and equipment.  But, the water didn't reach the house and we're fortunate for that!  After 2 days of cleanup around the shed and pool we were back to normal.

Enough about mother nature and her crazy ways, here are a few pics of our completed projects. I'll make sure Em shares all the details with you in the next few weeks. That's only if I can get her out of the week looks like its going to be another hot one!

We've put the finishing touches on our old room and created a beautiful room for a very special 2 year old.

We also put together a pretty cool gallery wall in our entryway with room to grow.  I'm sure we will have a lot of photo sessions in our future to add to it.

Sneak peek of the dessert table Emily and Tonya (from Love of Family & Home) put together for our 4th of July party! 

Make sure y'all stop back and check out how we put the finishing touches on these projects.  I've also got a few ideas up my sleeve that Emily doesn't know about!!
