Rainy Day Fourth of July Project1:08:00 PM
On a rainy Fourth of July on the East coast...
what else is there to do but to get up early
and whip up a little patriotic project?
As you know, I do some of my best work
first thing in the morning before anyone else is up.
I cut 3 pieces of scrap mahogany and screwed them together to make my pallet, then taped off a flag on the front.
Using a dry brush of Old Ochre Annie Sloan Chalk Paint,
I painted the stripes.
Then using Paloma Blue, I painted a quick coat of blue.
I stained the finished flag with a coat of dark wax. The red mahogany color of the wood was perfect for the red stripes.
I added a metal star to the field and my
Fourth of July project was finished!
Now if only the sun would come out...
Happy Birthday America!
