Personalized DIY Union Jack Dresser

Though there are so many combinations of colors that represent something or go so well together I will always be attracted to that of blue and yellow.+The combination of blue and yellow will always bring a big smile on my face reminding me of my unforgettable Swedish experience. The colors represent the national flag of Sweden and for me they represent the nicest combination of colors.

Although the following DIY project has not much in common with Sweden besides the combination of colors used it touched one of my sensitive strings. Actually the project it refers to a personalized DIY Union Jack Dresser. The Union Jack represents the national flag of United Kingdom and its current design dates from the Union of Great Britain and Ireland in 1801.There is a combination of three national flags using the Cross of Saint Andrew counterchanged with the Cross of Saint Patrick and over all the Cross of Saint George. Instead of the original combination of white, red and blue, yellow, white and blue are used for it.

Zinsser Primer, three shades of latex paint, small foam paint rollers, painter’s tape, raw wood dresser and knobs are some of the materials used for this nice project. Blue was used as the base color for the entire raw wood dresser. Then, the borders were taped off for the large white stripes and in the end some stripes were taped off for the small colored lines. Although the project may take some time its colorful and personalized design make you forget about any efforts.{found on lovelyindeed}.
