Texas Flag - DIY
I think this post should really be called, "See, I told you I'd make something cool with that wood." My husband always laughs because I love repurposing and holding onto things. Ok, I admit, I don't always have a project in mind, but I'm in no way a hoarder. So, we had all these extra boards that were removed from small crates after our move. I'd seen dozens of great ideas on Pinterest for reclaimed wood projects, so I couldn't let these go. I was inspired by giant Texas flags everywhere, as well as all the crackle paint tutorials. I followed the simple steps on the tutorials and created a one-of-a-kind distressed Texas flag for our back patio! I was totally in luck as I had 6 boards and when put together were the exact dimensions of the Texas flag! YES! For exact proportions of the flag, follow this guide: Flag Proportions
Reclaimed Wood - Rustic Texas Flag
Step 1: Cover wood in a thick coat of Elmer's Glue. Use foam brush to spread out evenly.
Step 2: After 30 seconds of glue drying, paint color coat on. Repeat steps 1 &2 on white and red portions.
Effect on blue after about 7 min. Effect took much longer on the colors.
