I am always drawn to the American Flag.
It moves me.
I’d seen dressers painted as flags and loved the idea….and the option that it offered for young men’s rooms which are so limited when it comes to painted furniture designs.
I was asked to paint a piece of furniture for the Heirloom Traditions Paint Company using all five colors from their “grays” color card…..and felt this was the perfect time to paint the flag dresser….but in a monochromatic version. (The colors are all linked in the Shop section below)
The bowed front of this Hepplewhite dresser lent itself to the natural wave of a flag.
Heavy distressing seemed appropriate to the final finish……especially if it were going to be utilized in a boys room. (Side note….my adult son saw this piece and carried it right out of the shop and into his home where it stands today!)
Here is a quick video of Julie & I painting it:
Here are the colors and products I used on this project. All of these are Amazon affiliate links, of which I could make a small commission if you purchase these paints with these links. I am not paid by Heirloom Traditions, I recommend their products. I only recommend what I use and love myself! You can find my entire list of favorite products for painting furniture on my Amazon influencer list here.
I’ve also painted another patriotic piece– check out my upcycled cable spool! I did this wall art for a little boy’s room.
I also made this for my son (who is in the AIr Force) to hold his coins! Functional wall art …
I hope you are feeling inspired! Now go make something fancy!! And sign up for more of my painting tips and furniture makeovers here.
