I finally found the time
quit being so lazy to make 4th of July signs for my front step post things, click here and here to see them in the making!
I used a 1x4 for the following project. I cut a piece 11" long, another piece 4" long and the last piece 7" long. I set the 4" piece aside and cut the other 2 pieces into thirds.
I didn't really have to cut the boards into thirds, but it made it so much easier to paint the stripes, I didn't have to tape anything off!
After I gave my paint approximately 3 minutes and 48 seconds to dry, I glued it back together using wood glue. After letting the wood glue sit for approximately 4 minutes, I took it out to the garage and sanded and glazed it. I kind of wanted it to look dirty and old.
Dirty and old? Check! Next I cut a few stars out of vinyl to finish my flag! The little wood block is supposed to be a firework, I was running out of time before the girls woke up from their nap, but at least it passes the red, white and blue test!
At least my front step is ready for the 4th of July!
