Back over my birthday in September, my (Jared) family was visiting and we decided to go check out some of Nashville's antique shops. While in one particular antique shop, Tanja noticed a Revolutionary American flag made out of metal and made to look old and distressed. The flag was about 20"x12" and Tanja really wanted it. I was able to convince her we could do better ourselves. So a week later I knew I had to deliver on that promise and we set out to build our own distressed Revolutionary American flag. Except ours is about 52"x40" + wood + has an anchor = Better.
