Union Jack coffee table

January 12, 2012 by momm7540
There’s no question that Miss Mustard Seed’s blog is one of my favorites. I’m sure most of your have seen her furniture , right? Then you know about her Union Jack dresser. It was a HUGE hit and created a big following of copy-cats. Of course, I was trailing behind.
When I start with a piece of furniture I don’t start off with a plan. I start giving the piece a sand and repairing any damaged areas. The design of the piece starts coming to me as I work with the piece.
As I started sanding this piece the wood grain revealed a familiar pattern
Do you see it too?
This was my opportunity to put my own spin on the Union Jack craze
After finishing this piece , It sold on Etsy.
I wish I would have held on to it.

The patina was perfect and would have brought a lot of character to my home.
