American Flag Upcycled Pallet

 Recycle an old pallet.  Patriotic awesomeness.
 This uses 13 Two inch strips, nailed to 4 cross bars on the back.
And a nail or a staple gun.
 Paint blue on the upper left side, using only 6 stripes.
Start with Red on the top...alternate red and white stripes...
yes, my 8 year old can do it!  :)
Allow to dry...

 Then I used Dark Walnut minwax wood stain.
Just rubbed with a rag onto the edges and across some stripes.
 I like it better just a tad distressed.
I put this up at our new house...
so I could remember which house was ours...
since there are 6 red brick houses in a row!  :)
Because I am fiercely patriotic and love America!
I love it!
