In honor of our upcoming trip to the British Isles, I thought it was only fitting to try my first Union Jack project. This was quick and easy, and I've already sent this crate off to the shop.
I found the crate at a neighborhood sale. I love any kind of wooden box, and I love to paint the plain Jane ones that I find.
This probably isn't the correct blue because I used a blue I had on hand that I thought might work. I only put the image on the front side because that's all you will basically see.
This is what the crate looked like when I found it. The man from the sale looked at me in disbelief that anyone would want this thing, but I purchased it from his wife.
I masked off the image with painter's tape and painted in the little triangles with blue. Then I stripped off the tape and painted in my white. Then I masked off the middle of the white to make my red stripes. The rest of the crate got a new coat of blue paint. I love my Union Jack crate and I'm sure this will not be my last project with Jack. Thanks for stopping by.
