The perfect Father’s Day gift idea is always something that includes doing something together to make memories like this custom dart wall.
Each month I join several other bloggers to make something inspired by something we have pinned to our Pinterest Boards. Thank you so much to Erlene of My Pinterventures for organizing the challenge and tour!

It’s time for the May Pin Challenge! The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month’s challenge is about Father’s Day or projects geared towards the men in our lives. The pin I chose was this reclaimed wood dart wall.
See my Pinterest Challenge post from April in this post where I shared inspiration for Mother’s Day.
If there is one thing I’ve learned as a sister of two brothers, a teacher for many years, a wife and a mom to three boys, it’s that the best way to spend time with boys and men is by doing something active. One of my passions is for providing opportunities to make memories. When thinking of an idea for a Father’s Day gift this year, I knew I wanted it to be something active that would give my husband and kids memory making moments together. On Pinterest I came across the idea for a custom dart wall.

Brian had made a barn wood feature wall in our room off the lake. It’s a space I had been trying to decide what to do with. On the adjacent wall is our extra refrigerator where we keep beverages for entertaining on the patio and for filling the cooler to go on the boat. The rest of the room is an extra TV room, a bit of a mud room and a space to hang out.
See more of our lake room in this post from last year’s Summer Home Tour.
When I saw the Pinterest Inspiration photo I knew exactly what would be perfect there!
I used two metal buckets with chalkboard labels I found at Walmart for under $3 a piece to hold the two sets of darts.
Also at Walmart, I found a small hanging chalkboard to use as a score keeper. (As I often do, I was up working on this when the house was all asleep. I’m a night owl. So I used 3M hooks. Tomorrow when I can make noise, I’ll use nails to hang the buckets.)
This was such a simple project and cost under $30. It will provide so many fun times ahead this Father’s Day and after!
