Thought ya'll may enjoy this post again with July 4th coming up. My plans were to take ya'll along with me on a trail ride into our swamp. The rain put a "damper"..ha...on that idea. So how about a little rerun instead for today? Enjoy!
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
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!
Now have some fun!
