Old Glory – wooden American flag

we’ve been testing ways to make big wood walls that aren’t as heavy as Noah’s arc. 🙂wood-American-flag

so we built this prototype and i was inspired to paint Old Glory.american-flag-wood-rustic

this is a 4′ x 5′ piece that i hand-painted with a custom blue blend of Annie Sloan graphite + napoleonic and Gilbertson’s chalk paint in Seagull and a custom light brown. IMG_3757

i wish i had an open wall large enough for this awesome piece! 🙂

  1. I wish that I had seen this piece before the Fourth. I love the simple, rustic design. Sure, it’s big but shouldn’t the American flag deserve to be big? I’ll have to keep this in mind for next summer. My wife and I love crafts and DIY like this.
