Flag #2

I made a rustic wood flag earlier this month, using cheap, rough wood from Home Depot. Today, I took a 2nd shot at the same project.

This time, I used wood from a shipping pallet I picked up for free. After sanding off the dirt and ink markings on the palette wood, it ended up looking better than the cheap Home Depot wood. In fact, it looked too good. I was going for "rustic" so I had to rough it up. The white stripes are bare wood, the red is cheap acrylic paint, and the part that is supposed to be blue is just burnt with a propane torch.
Looks great

That must have been fun to make, especially the propane torch bit!

@northy - The first one is hanging on the wall in my kitchen. Today, I just gave the new one to my parents. It's hanging up on their front porch.
