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...
