The whole reason E and I want to work on our backyard and make it nice is so that we get outside more, watch tv less, and just have more fun. We enjoy building things together and also a little friendly competition. What better game to play outside in our newly updated backyard, than cornhole? I had been reading some tutorials here and there, so when E was building the fence, I got a few 2x4s and started to put one together.
I am a proud Colorado native, so what else would I have on my board than a CO flag? E being raised in Texas his whole life and our little man being born here, we decided the other should be a TX flag. Of course, ladies first, I made the Colorado one. I followed this tutorial from the DIY Network, because it most certainly needed to be regulation size. I knew I wanted the legs to be able to fold up so we could hang them in our garage for when we were not using them. So, I would recommend using this tutorial for the legs. I used 2x4s on mine and to get them at the correct height and to still be able to fold under was a little bit of a head ache.
I love the way it came out!
