Sorry the flag is upside down. I dont mean to be disrepectful, but was not thinking about it when I took it. I think that there is something more wrong about stepping on it though.
I had begun to paint it black at first because I wasn't quite sure what colors I was going to use. The black didn't cover very well, but I still used it. Once I had gone to the store and gotten colors and white I had painted over the black. The effect turned out to be quite nice. I sanded it down a bit because there is crackle paint over it that was beginning to flake. I thought it would probably be best to get rid of some of that before going over it with new paint.
Cute huh?! Erin over at Lemon Tree Creations had redone a sign. She explains how here, http://lemontreecreations.blogspot.com/2010/03/1-welcome-sign.html
Thanks for the idea Erin! It worked out wonderfully for me.
Love how it turned out. I hope my little G hopes using it as much as I like to look at it.
