The first idea is a cute and inexpensive tabletop idea that I pulled together for the coming few weeks until after the Independence day holiday is finished.
It was inspired after watching my husband and kids play catch night after night, during BBQ time. We have a perfect little strip of grass on the side of our house right next to the BBQ area and while they wait they either throw balls or shoot nerf guns/bows. I gathered up their baseballs and borrowed my son's dump truck to host them. I tucked a few flags into a container filled with white rocks and nestled it on a tray next to the truck. The perfect thing, is they can grab the baseballs as they head into the backyard. This has already proven quite a handy little spot! Cute... and functional!
I cut a piece of thin plywood to size at Lowes, then stained it and had my son drill two holes in it for hanging. I used a thumbtack and string and pencil to do that old circle drawing trick. (The tack goes into the center with the string tied to it on one end, and then you tie the other end of the string to a pencil and draw circles, shortening up the string to make smaller circles. Afterward, I painted in the spaces using leftover paint that I had on hand in the garage.)
This was such a quick project!
my boss is doing on her blog right now and wanted to share some of my favorites here too.
