~ Pallet Flag and DIY Baseball Field ~

We are busy bees over here, getting ready for our youngest son's 6th birthday celebration. He requested a baseball party and has been counting down the days!

My sister made us the coolest pallet flag to add to our field - - 'cause every baseball field needs a flag! It will also be fun to use for the Fourth of July...

Using a large piece of wood I found in the barn, I made this chalkboard score board, by simply rolling on chalkboard paint.

My husband and our oldest son painted the baselines. 

They used this prodcut...

We moved our fire pit benches over to the sidelines for the dugouts. ;)

We purchased this portable backstop from a sporting goods store and secured it with tent stakes.

Here's a view of the field from our bedroom window...

We're looking forward to filling the field with little baseball players. 

If you build it, they will come! :)

I'll share more baseball party pictures soon...

Hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. How cute is that?! A great idea for when my grandkids come to visit :)

  2. That's a great way to use your large property with your kids this summer!

  3. What a great looking field and I LOVE the flag pallet your sister made for you!

  4. I love that pallet flag.

    You reminded me that I have an old wooden flag in the garage. I think I see a project for the week coming up!

  5. Julie! I love it! You and your husband are wonderful parents! Wow! Your kids are sooooo very lucky! Talk soon! Cindy

    1. Aww, thank you Cindy... We are blessed to be able to do some extra things like this. I often think of parents who are working multiple jobs, just trying to put food on the table, with little time to enjoy...

  6. You create so much fun here for your family, and that palet Flag I am going to make one for our yard :)


    1. I'm so glad! Would love to see your piece of rustic, patriotic art!! :)
