Happy Sunday y'all!  My DIY share for the week is this super sturdy flag holder.  You can ready all about it here.  We also spent the entire day yesterday cleaning/organizing our garage, it feels so good to have it all cleaned out.  We piled on so much junk to take to the dump that my husband's truck looked like a low rider.  Purging feels good.

What have you been up to?

Please excuse our porch decor -- its a work in progress right now between summer and fall.  What I really wanted to share is my super, heavy duty flag holder that Eddie made.

We've had these types of holders, multiple times and they always break.

Now we have this!

I've forgotten this outside now twice during some pretty windy thunderstorms and it held up -- I didn't even lose the flag!

What you need:

  • pipe flange (plumbing)
  • all thread nipple (plumbing)
  • 45 degree elbow (plumbing)
  • 6 or 8 inch nipple (plumbing)
  • wood screws
  • black spray paint

I love it!

We're waiting for the weather to cool off a bit so that we can re-stain all the cedar -- it's in desperate need of a drink after the summer heat.  However, we can mark one thing off of our porch "to-do" list.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you make one for yourself, we'd love to know!

Sorry about the party last week -- I have no idea what the problem was.  Whatever it was, it was on my end & I couldn't figure it out for the life of me.  Fingers crossed that we're good this week. :)

Time to strut your stuff!
