Smaller Union Jack Behind the Scenes

Since I have one Union Jack under my belt, I figured it would be easier to tackle another one.  It was easier, but, unless your spray painting a candle stick... I don't think anything within the furniture refreshment business is "easy" or, for the meek.

I had these shutters, they were part of a VERY old cabinet we have inherited ... I have never had a super clever idea of what to do with them.  I did some test runs on the one board.  I still love it like that.  Its metallic silver and grey.

But, I screwed them back together for this project.
Had to match them back up ...


It's very cool, quite rock n roll, and it's for sale.  

I used the exact same techniques that I learned here. But, I upgraded my original image to the one from Lilyfield Life found here.

I have ONE more Union Jack up my sleeve.  Another dresser that is awaiting refreshment...
By the time it's finished (and hopefully sold) Kate and Wills will be husband and wife.  
I think we better take advantage of all this royal goodness while we can !


  1. I LOVE it. I have been wanting to try the Union Jack dresser but have nowhere to put it. This is something I could definitely find a space for. Very nicely done!

  2. Ok, I stopped by to say thanks for the sweet comment that you left on my blog and now I am about to DIE over your Union Jack dresser! You have got some serious talent-I'm jelous! I'm now a follower and can't wait to see what you do next!
