Snow Day Fun!

What to do on a snow day with a pile of scrap wood?
Sam had a snow day last week and as always I was itching to do something in the garage but it was kinda cold and we had about 4" of snow on the ground.  I have turned my ping pong table into a indoor work space so ....
We started with this:

Using a chart we made on graph paper, my miter saw and sander in the garage we made this:

We moved to the basement to create the puzzel.

Again using our chart we painted each piece using leftover paint from around the house and other projects and we had this:

 We took our painted boards and glued them to a piece of plywood, let them dry, then sanded and added nails. This is the finished piece:
Our inspiration came from this Pottery Barn Wall Decor:

Pottery Barn 50" x 50" $399.00

Art by Sam & Gretchen 30" x 30" $10 (for a piece of plywood)!!!
We had a fun day doing it!!
We think it will grace the wall in Sam's bedroom or the game room!
