Preparing for the Wedding

Hi All,
With all the hype for 4.29.11 and the Royal Wedding, I jumped in to show my love.
Union Jack 009
I have a side table that needed something.  Let me take you through the creative process:
I was inspired by Miss Mustard Seed.  She completed a few dressers by painting Union Jack on the front, I was smitten.

Grab 9-year-old and put her to work.
Union Jack 004
Allow her to paint. 
Union Jack 007
OOPS – this is what happens when you talk on the phone, have a guest in the house and attempt the creative process!
Grab another table and start again.

I actually like it at this stage.  But I added the white.

After it’s painted, sand it (for the distressed look), stain it and done.

Thanks for stopping – have a great day!
