Flag Art piece

Here's a little art piece I made from bead board scraps.  It is my version on the beadboard flags I've seen.  

Kind of remind you of oh I don't know ....a target maybe.  

When I first painted it I was not lovin it but after heavy distressing, light and dark wax, I am diggin it now.  I put it up on my mantle for the 4th.

I am definitely making myself another one for after the 4th and painting it a watery blue, maybe duck egg blue ASCP, to fit in with the coastal vibe I have going in the living room.   I am thinking of adding this to my shop page for custom orders as well as beadboard picture frames like I made for a giveaway last year. I just love beadboard.  

So what are your plans for the 4th? 

playing at the following parties:

My Repurposed Life- Catch as Catch Can 
Funky Junk Interiors- Saturday Night Special
The Lettered Cottage- Summer Mantel Link Party

Pin It
