Pottery Barn Museum Flag Knock Off


When I received the latest Pottery Barn catalog, I noticed this neat looking wooden flag.  Very nice and $159!  Hmmm, that looks like something we could make…

We started with some plywood, pine and fence boards. 

 
 
I painted the structure with Americana Buttermilk, then added a brown antiquing gel that I rubbed off.  I used Midnight Blue under the stars and watered down Tomato Red for the stripes. 
 


I found this stencil at Michael’s and used it for the stars.

 
 

I used this hammer to beat up the stripes.
We used a biscuit joiner to attach the pole. 
 


We used this old doorknob as the finial.

I’m loving how it looks in the family room.
 
And especially love the $10 that it cost to make!

Thank you for your visit.
