Union Jack Coffee Table

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers out there! Hope you are spo

iled and appreciated, not only today, but every other day, too. I want to show you my version of the Union Jack trend...




I have been itching to paint something in Union Jack, and thought that this little table was due for another make-over.  This is how I transformed it when I first got it.
It was perfect, since it already had the red, and I just had to add the white and blue.


Although I did touch the red up, some, too, to make it brighter.

My husband really liked it, all perfect and flawless, like above...

 He was a little disgusted when I started sanding and distressing it! LOL.


But I like it more just a little bit distressed and imperfect...don't you agree?
I sold it to a guy in Phoenix who bought it for his girlfriend, who is from Britain..
Perfect!

Have a great Mother's Day!
