We were in Lowe’s in Banner Elk and stumbled onto a deal on lawn and garden stakes. They were selling 24 pointed stakes for $2.99 to make way for winter and seasonal goods. We bought all they had!
We fiddled around with a few different ideas then dug into constructing, staining, and painting a few projects.

Any other ideas on how we can use these to make cool stuff?
