TRASH to TREASURE




UNION JACK FLAG

I know I am a COPYCAT!  who cares, when there are so many wonderful ideas that can be borrowed.  I feel that as long as I give credit to the people/bloggers that have inspired me, it's ok ;)  Remeber when Jenny posted this.   Secretely, I so wanted to make something Bristish for the longest time.  I just didn't know what I wanted to make.  The opportunity came up when I found this little stool and it became my treasure.  Hubby was with me when I found it and quoting him "why do you want that trash" I answered him because I want to make something fabulous.  Not quite like that but in my mind I already knew what I wanted to do with it.  If I would have explained it to him, he just wouldn't have understood.   well here it is!  I am LOVING it.... Oh, I didn't know that the red stripes in the corner of the Union Jack Flag had to be drawn a certain way.  I learn something knew every day...

Lizy I love it soooooooooooooo much! You did a great job! Is it painted on? Or is it a decoupaged flag?? Either way it looks fabulous, i am so jealous and now I need to make myself something new like this...

I never noticed that the diagonals on the Union Jack were offset like that, so cool! It looks like maybe you painted it on?? However you did it, it looks perfect!
