OK, so here's the deal, some projects are so fun I can't wait to do them again and some projects.........Well, lets just say this is the last Union Jack Project you will see here!
I found this cute little stool at an estate sale and it was already blue and you can see the red peaking through. I bought it the same weekend as the Queens Jubilee, so I was all into the Union Jack
Ok, so here is the problem, I, like many of you thought the Union Jack was just a cross with an X through it.......NO, there is some slight nuances with the X that make it difficult and tedious to paint
Click HERE for a great tutorial on drawing a Union Jack
Now, look close at the X, the red line is not centered in the white
Pretty funny, I thought every Union Jack I saw painted on blogs had messed up LOL!
Oh and this will take you a roll of painters tape...Tape, paint, wait, tape, paint, wait, repeat ZZZZZ.
I sanded and waxed it to bring out the undercoat of red paint then put it in my booth at Orange Tree for $28
To my UK Friends, I love you, and I love the Union Jack.....I just don't loooooove painting it!
Have a great weekend
