The Union Jack Coffee Table: Part 1

I have always wanted to create a furniture piece that featured the Union Jack design. What kept me from doing it is my fear of taping.  I hate to tape stuff – I am much more of a freestyle decorative painter – so I have postponed doing this design.  I also am not very good at it – measuring etc.  It’s not my cup of tea.

But, I received a free drop leaf coffee table a few months ago and I thought and thought about what I would do with it.  The Union Jack came to mind and so I dove right it.  I am going to do a step-by-step on how I did the design tomorrow – so if you want to do something like this, please come back and read how I did it and the mistakes I made along the way.

Here’s some after photos…
