I think if I ever make one it will be from shims since you can buy packages of them. Though if I'd have remembered to pick up a paint stick everytime I got a can of oops paint I'd almost have enough to make one. Or maybe they'd sell me some paint sticks. They'd take stain better and I'd want to stain mine.

DM--I won't venture a guess! They do hand out stir sticks pretty freely, however. I think I might have posted about a shim one. :)

I've seen them made from shims, or my popularly known around here "as those wedgie things" since I rarely remember the name of them. I saw them at Home Depot last night or I'd have not known what to call them now.

One question though. Did she ask for the extra paint sticks? I mean they're not just laying out like paint chips are. I mean it ust have taken at least 40 of them.
