This is how I spent my weekend. Painting a flag after I saw this...
This flag is from Pottery Barn and has had a special place in my heart for some time now. I did make one last year but it was with a scrap piece of wood and was made in minutes. I wanted to make another and spend some more time making it perfectly un-perfect!
I started out with a piece of pine from Lowes.
I drew lines where needed...
I also cut out 50..yes FIFTY stars just so I could move them around and place them in perfectly un-perfect places.
After stencling each and every 50 yes fifty stars I painted blue around each of them.
Red stripes added..
I then sanded, distressed, and stained with my favorite stain for that perfectly un-perfect look!
I know I started getting busy and was too pooped to take down my wreath...Im lazy like that!
Here is my stained hand allowing you to have an idea how large this sweet flag is!
So go forth and make yourself a flag and save yourself 129.99 that you would spend at other places.
