Here are some of the whimsicals I had to begin with:
Cute little patriotic bears
Basket with a pretty burgundy stripe
My Mum bought this flag set for Hubba last CHRISTmas
Framed art & a wooden banner
A long prim-look wooden flag banner & a couple little trinkets (birdhouse & a mail holder type thing)
Here is a mirror that I painted, along with some stars I bought, some I revamped (the wire looking ones, I painted & glued little metal stars on), and a whimsical I had before:
Here are a couple before pics of one wall (before). Notice the tacky thermostat?!?!
And here is the after- after I put up the huge stars (covering the therm *winkwinknudge*) & my flag. I'm quite chuffed with myself & that flag!!!
And here is a close up of said flag. It really looks better in person *sigh*
Here are a couple of my favourite things. My Simplify wall. It was the first wall I put stuff up on & always will be. It is my fave part of the room. You see this as you come in the front door!!!
And a BEAUTIFUL angel one of my bestest online friends made for me. She came with a special home blessing from my friend.
For the flag here's what I used & did:
9 cedar planks (3-3.5"X5')
I cut one of the planks to be the size of the other 8 together. I ran some glue down those cut planks & then nailed the full planks to it. After that I just started painting. I cut a stencil from an index card for the star. As I stenciled & painted the star I just rotated it here & there so they wouldn't look the same. Quite easy & only a few hours work. Best of all, I am so happy with it & Hubba REALLY likes it, LOL.
Next picture post will be of the mudding & sanding I'm doing. Hard work, but a LOT of fun. Yes, I'm loving it!
Have a very blessed day!
