About a year ago I had my girls go get a pallet in my neighborhood. They had quite a hard time of it because there was stuff piled on top of it. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it at the time, so it just sat out by the wood pile. Patiently waiting. And then pinterest came to the rescue.
As soon as I saw a pallet flag, I knew that's what my pallet would become. A couple of dollars in craft paint and about thirty minutes later.
