"I was commissioned to make this very large barn wood American flag. It was such an honor making it, especially with everything going on in our country at the moment. I used 100% General Finishes products in Coastal Blue, Snow White, and Holiday Red Milk Paints, and both Pitch Black and Van Dyke Brown Glaze. I should acknowledge that General Finishes products are made here in the United States." - Vintage Soul Barn
