When I received the latest Pottery Barn catalog, I noticed this neat looking wooden flag. Very nice and $159! Hmmm, that looks like something we could make...
We started with some plywood, pine and fence boards.
I painted the structure with Americana Buttermilk, then added a brown antiquing gel that I rubbed off. I used Midnight Blue under the stars and watered down Tomato Red for the stripes.
I found this stencil at Michael's and used it for the stars.
I used this hammer to beat up the stripes.
We used a biscuit joiner to attach the pole.
We used this old doorknob as the finial.
I'm loving how it looks in the family room.
And especially love the $10 that it cost to make!
Thank you for your visit.
