Union Jack Dresser


I finished up my Union Jack dresser today!!
It went much smoother & faster than I anticipated.

After I finished, I kept catching myself going back to it over & over just to look at it. Haha!
So, here's ol Jack:



 He's not perfect but, then again, who is? Right?
=)

Here are a few of my progress pictures:

I'm thinking of writing a step by step tutorial.
Thanks to Miss Mustard Seed for the inspiration!
& as always, thanks for reading!!

  3. Oh, please write a tutorial! I kept looking at the taping and going huh? she taped what first? I;m kinds slow sometime :) I've always wanted to try this but have felt hat it was way out of my skill set. On a 1-10, how difficult was it?

    I love it by the way!!!

    1. I would say it was about 4 on the difficulty scale. After I figured out the best way to tape off it went really well. It was much easier than I thought it would be- but I didn't do a whole lot of measuring- I eyeballed everything. If you want to shoot me an email at Simplysalvagedrestoration@gmail.com I'd be happy to give you a step by step (I took pics!!). Thanks!!

  4. Wow. Great job! The Jack is next to do on my bucket list! Question,,,,When you sanded (did u use chalk paint??) the red next to the white areas, did the white turn pink??? just curious how you did that part. Thanks! Beth

    1. I didn't use chalk paint- just regular ol latex. I didn't have any problems when I sanded over the white and red- I distressed the edges first and wore my paper out a little- then, went back and distressed over the paint. I think it dried about 3 hours before I started distressing though.
      Good luck with yours!
