Beachy Pallet Flag

Before I get to my post I would just like to thank everyone for your extremely kind comments about my kitchen redo! It was a long time coming and I was so excited to share. I'm glad that you all were just as thrilled as I was about the transformation!! So I just wanted to mention that I tried to respond to everyone that left me a comment. If you did not receive one from me, please check to see if you are a no reply blogger. I hate not being able to tell you how grateful I am for your words and visits! (Click HERE for a great post on how to check/change no reply blogger).

Alrighty then! Back in November we took a road trip to visit one of my very good friends from high school!! Before we left she gave me a ton of stuff that she had used in her wedding to try and sell in my booth. I came home with burlap runners, grapevine balls filled with shells, a bag of starfish and wreath stands! 

I was finally able to break out the summery starfish and shells and have been trying to do different things with them for my booth. 

I came across this very cool flag on Pinterest and knew this was definitely how I was going to use up some of the starfish. 


As always, I turned to my handy hubby and he whipped together this very simple pallet flag for me! 


He glued the boards and kept them together with three small boards on the back.

 

I painted the boards with Antique White and Behr's Caribbean Mist and glued the starfish on with E-6000. 

The boards were heavily distressed!





So perfectly beachy! It's available in my booth at Collette's Vintage!

  9. OH my heavens, that is absolutely gorgeous, I am going to start making one of those tomorrow, oh do I love it. I have the pallet lumber aplenty and the paint, how exciting. Just have to wait to be able to buy the starfish. Michaels has the beautful white ones with long arms, can either buy one or a bagful, will have a nice coupon to use. So glad you shared this project, so summer, perfect.
