Grey & Yellow Union Jack Coffee Table

I’m spelling it “g-r-e-y” in honor of the Union Jack flag. I’m so over hearing “Grey”, as in different shades of it (yawn).

This project started out as a headboard, sort of side table for Shay’s bedroom / college student lounge. Jerry built the perfect side table, and I got to do the fun part. Initially I was going to make a gray and yellow Union Jack pillow, but after I saw the table in progress, yep…it was meant to be!

Started on the gray paint, and I haven't spotted my mistake yet.

Oops, I taped the Union Jack wrong. Left side correct, right side is WRONG. So glad I caught it.

The fun part - removing the tape and seeing how it turned out.

We knew as soon as it was done, that it would not be staying at our house for long. It would be in her soon to be new apartment as a coffee table. We have success! She loves it!

Jerry builds everything “industrial strength”.this table will last a lifetime (or two)!

      Thank you Christine. I’m just thankful I double checked the picture before painting the yellow. I realized I had it taped off wrong. Any time you need help with something, just let me know. 🙂
