Union Jack Take Two

***SOLD***
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.

    1. Thanks Fiona! Saw the pics on your blog of the Masterchef judge - my husband and I love watching that show. :) I think the judges are nicer than the American ones!
