Union Jack Crate

This is a cool old crate that I painted in the Union Jack.  It didn’t have a top so Scott made me one out of antique boards and attached it with hinges.  Then it was primed and painted.

 Next came the drafting of all the lines.  Then I moved on to taping off all the red followed by all the blue.  Each color took several coats to cover well and I rolled them on with a small foam roller.

 After the paint dried, I distressed certain ares with a sander.  Next came waxing and then I added a bit of dark wax to age the piece.
