Union Jack Take Two

This is my 2nd Union Jack piece.  I just love these pieces once their done.  The stripes on  the last one were easy because the surface was flat.  On this piece I had to go over trim so it was a little frustrating, but with my husband's help we got it done! 

I used CeCe Caldwell's Seattle Mist and Simply White and sealed with Annie Sloan's clear wax.  The top was stripped and stained with dark walnut and the pulls were from another piece.  As much as I like the red, white, and blue Union Jacks I really love the ones done in more neutral colors.

Finally done!

I've had this china cabinet sitting in my dining room for 2 years waiting to be painted.  It is by Drexel and I found it on CL for $65!  I bought it before I knew anything about chalk paint.  So glad I waited.  It was hard enough to paint not having to prime and sand I can't imagine having to do all that on this thing that does not come apart!  I used CeCe Caldwell's Seattle Mist with a little Annie Sloan's French Linen brushed on top, some light distressing, and waxed to seal.  I love how my Grandmother's china pops off the color.  The china I got when we were married is still boxed up in our basement - never been used!
