Happy 4th of July everyone!!! I hope everyone is having a good long weekend :)
Long ago…back before by blogging days, i made this flag out of reclaimed wood for my sons room – the wood was on its way to the dump – very sad. But, no fear! I rescued it and made this cute flag – it still even has the old bird poop on it (the wood was from a bird coop) – is that gross, should i even be telling people this? The poop is on the back side – i was just to lazy to scrub it off ;)
So no tutorial – just some pics
Each piece of wood is a 2×6 so the flag is pretty big and heavy. I watered down all the paint and then sanded a lot of it off. I love how the 3rd piece has a big ol’ crack in it – it just adds to the “oldness” factor.
In “real” life the colors aren’t this bright – its a little more toned down – just so ya know…
I used some unfinished stars from the craft store
Then to hold it all together, i screwed some holes and tied all the slats with some wire – the wire was then curled with a pencil
The paint in his room was a ralph lauren denim glaze – i LOVE this technique – it was easy and fun and so very boy. I will be finishing up one last thing in his room and then will show you the whole room soon.
I will post more on my closet tomorrow. Until then, have fun and be careful with the fireworks!!!
