Chippy Window American Flag

6:30:00 AM

       I love when I'm driving down the road and I see something I just have to have! 

Chippy Window American Flag

This was it for me today... this old chippy window was actually a double pane window but part of the wood was rotted so I cut it down to one window. 

Being the Fourth of July πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ and how much I love to make flags, this project was an easy pick for a project.

I began by using masking tape to tape off the stripes of a flag. I'm working on the back of the window.

I gave each color a couple of coats. If you hold it up to a light the color looks streaky but putting it against a wall, the paint is quite opaque. 

Once I had the taped off white stripes, the rest was easy. I hand painted the red stripes, the white paint kept the lines sharp.

I stenciled a white star into the field then when it dried,  painted the field blue right over the star.

I didn't need to even touch the chippy wood because the patina was perfect! 

I added an old rusty chain to the top to hang it from the fence. You can visit my fence hanger story to find out more about hanging decor on a fence.

It looks great hanging out by the repurposed lamp shade planter too!
