Barnwood and Beadboard Patriotic Flags

Holidays and big events always seem to get here sooner than you think they will,
or at least they do for me.
 
I had so many ideas for projects for July 4th.
These barnwood and beadboard flags are finished up just in time.
 
 
 
 

My idea started out just painting a flag onto leftover beadboard.
Then I remembered a couple disassembled barnwood frame pieces that I had in my stash
and decided to put frames on the beadboard flags.
 
Once the barnwood frame pieces were assembled, I cut the beadboard to fit them.


 
 
I painted the beadboard flags the same way I painted
a flag on an old cutting board.
You can read more details about how I did that here.
 
 
 
 
After distressing and antiquing the beadboard flags,
I attached them inside of the frames and added hangers to finish them.
 

 

 


 
I'm a sucker for weathered barnwood
and I'm so glad I finally put these frames to good use.






Although I'm not planning to keep these,
I think they look great on the front porch of our cabin.
 




 
 
They are heading to my booth tomorrow morning
in hopes that they find a great home before the 4th!
 
(and if they don't, then at least I know they have a spot at my home)
 
 
 
 
 I hope your holiday plans are coming together.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who has more ideas than time.
 
Enjoy your weekend!
