Task #12: Texas Love

This entry is part 13 of 22 in the series Tackling Tasks

We have a fondness of Texas that comes naturally to anyone born in the state.  It can never be removed.  It is stuck in there.  A while back we were in the market for a Texas state flag, but living in California, we didn’t see very many…in fact, none.  So my in-laws found one for us on a trip to Texas and we love it.

I just knew we would love it even more when we got it on the wall.  So, today’s task was to put it up in our loft.  We have had the perfect spot for it for quite some time.  In fact, this flag used to be proudly displayed by resting it on top of the back of the sofa (how’s that for child safe?) just a few inches lower than where we wanted it to be.

This project required the use of a hammer, two nails, and a laser level/stud finder.  The frame for the flag had a wire picture hanger on it and was pretty heavy, so we wanted to make sure it was sturdy and level.  My husband did all the hard work of stud-finding and leveling.

And we are very happy with the results!  Now our girls will recognize the state flag of Texas long before they recognize the state flag of California.  Which will come in handy should we have to immigrate when Texas secedes!
