Getting Creative at Home Blog Tour brings you....My Favorite Painted Project!

Highlight of my favorite Paint Project....Union Jack!

I can tell you that this week is going to be fantastic and is going to keep me hopping all week....for many reasons!  Besides having a truckload of fresh paint treasures to take out to Booth 172, I am leaving Tuesday for a last minute trip to Disneyland with my family and I have not 1 thing in a suitcase!  Does anyone else pack at the last minute like me?  Alrighty then!   But the biggest news is that I have the great honor of co-hosting Getting Creative at Home Blog Tour with 23 other bloggers that are the best in the biz!  Can't believe they wanted little ole me to join them.  This is going to be colossal ...WHY you ask?  I love learning from the Pro's!

The tour was created out of saddness (sniff sniff)........saddness that none of us got to go to the Haven Conference in Atlanta where we would of met and mingled with other bloggers, sat in class given by more Pro's, might of won a trinket or two, laughed until we cried and came home with a wealth of info to put to use!   So what do sad blogger chicks do when they are sad....brainstorm...you're right!!!!

The week long tour will bring you all sorts of goodness from everyone and I am going to share with you one of my all time favorite furniture redo's.  Little Union Jack!  He was my favorite because I had absolutely no idea what I was going to transform him into until I had the paint brush in my hand.....seriously!

Here's little Jack....kinda pitiful looking and a little wobbley!  Had to get out serious tools for this guy.  Yep that's him....the little 2 tiered frail looking guy!  You can look here at the original post.

After the flag of the United Kingdom came to me I got out my paints and painted away with Miss Mustard Seed-Flow Blue with a little bonding agent .  I have seen many UK flags painted on furniture before in many different colors and they all look great in their own way but one thing that I was seeing on a few flags was....not accurated stripes and dimensions.  I went a little loco when I saw that.  I found an exact flag here.

Even tho this is an oval table it worked out just fine...don't ya think??  After a little MMSMP-Tricycle I started Frog Taping some lines.

After I had painted lines exactly where they were to be I slowly peeled the tape away and I screeched in horror!  It was pulling up paint....so what's a gal supposed to do besides scream more....pull up more!  And look at all the glorious character he is sporting!  I just went with it!

Go with the flo and randomness is why this paint project was my favorite!  Sometimes when you over think and plan a project you set yourself up for disappointment when it doesn't turn out the way you had envisioned!  And he sold the week I took him to the booth....wahoo!

How do you plan your projects?  Way in advance or as you go?

Now go wander around my blog for a bit leave me some love and a message or two then go visit all the gals on the list for Monday down at the bottom of this post.  You can sneak ahead and pre-browse if you want but be sure to go back on their post day!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post today it really brings a smile to my face and chivers up my neck....oh I was just thinking about this week in Disney!   NO....I do not ride any rides.....even the kiddie rides make me sick.  I know, sad right!!!  But I will be spending time with the hubs and my 3 kiddos.

Here's the schedule:

Monday, Aug. 5:

Tuesday, Aug. 6:

Wednesday, Aug. 7:

Thursday, Aug. 8:

Friday, Aug. 9:

This is a great opportunity to see some great projects, browse new blogs and make some new blog friends. It's almost like being a part of the Haven Conference.  Plus, it's FREE!  

Start here on Monday to see the first five great blogs and keep following all week.  On Monday, August 12, we'll post a round-up of all the great projects for you to see on one page.

I'm looking forward to a fun week of touring blogs!

I love it! I not only love your design and colors, I love the way you distressed it. It's perfect. Have a great trip. laurie

Christina said...

I just love this project! Really like the softer blue you chose- That is probably one of the trickier flags to paint- and the peeled paint is perfect and add to its character- Don't you love it when little oopses actually enhance a project! Visiting from the blog tour!
Have fun in Disney- was just there a few months ago :)- such fun

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

What a fun project! I just started painting furniture this summer and am happy to be following along via GFC to see what's new!

Hi! Loved your post and project, looks like you distressed on purpose, it turned out great!
I'm a new follower Gps and Linky, have a wonderful time on your vacation and yes, I pack at the last minute and also don't have plans when I paint until I pick up the paint brush!!!

Hey Kelly...Kelly of my soulful home here! Awesome kick off project! I will never pass up one of those sad wobbly two tiered tables again. You sure know your way around a paint brush!!
:) Kelly

Dewena Callis said...

Visting by way of Laurie Ritchey and your table is really cool! I've seen some of those tables in years past in antique stores. You've made them stylish again.

Amy Ellis said...

Love your Union Jack table, Kelly, just beautiful!

Denyse @ Glitter, Glue, Paint said...

You are not alone, Kelly! I am such a last minute packer that I stress myself out more. So, I deeply sympathize.

Your little Jack came out beautiful. And, the tape mishap was an added bonus for sure.

I'm also still crying over Haven...LOL


Kerryanne @ Shabby Art Boutique said...

Who needs Haven... we'll be smiling all week with all this inspiration. Love your table.

Tammy @ circa-1929 said...

First off - I love it. I love painted furniture as it is my true love and this is awesome.
I am so glad we all came together to share our DIY awesomeness. Heck with Haven- haha

Cathy said...

Love the table, A+ on the paint job.

You can acquire wedding dresses which can be off period for any considerable price reduction. They're dresses from your final handful of a long time that didn't market. There exists practically nothing mistaken with them;

Ah! I just wonder how these innovative ideas strike your mind! Loved the painting to its core.
