Beadboard Flag

I have been neck-deep in home projects again the last few days, but in honor of Memorial Day, I wanted to show off a beadboard flag I made!

When my last Pottery Barn catalog came, I had actually turned down the corner of the page with their huge $129 flag on it (click on the picture for a link to their website):

Painted American Flag Wall Art

So it was funny that a few days later, a lovely woman (for whom I have made other signs) asked if I could copy it for her!

My version is 48” long x 27” tall, and made out of beadboard.

Wishing a Happy Memorial Day to you all, gentle readers! 

Thank you for those who have served our country, or who have supported family members who have!

Hi Korrie,

Your flag is gorgeous!!! Using beadboard was very smart. I made one with lattice strips.

That is a great knock off version! I might have to borrow that idea someday a spot on my back deck that's begging for something neat!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Wonderful project you have here...love how you used beadboard.

Blessings,

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

Love that flag, and I bet you made it for a lot less than the Pottery Barn one.

Erin said...

Such a genius use of beadboard, Korrie! I've been wanting to paint a rustic flag sign, but dreaded all the taping to make the stripes. Now I have no excuse not to try this! :)

Take care,
Erin

This is fabulous! I love the beadboard, it makes the stripes a lot easier to do! I may have to borrow this idea. I hope you have a fabulous day!

Gorgeous Knock-Off! I made one 30 years ago out of lath - but my stars were too small. I used stickers on top of a white ground and spray-painted the space blue. How did you do your stars?
