All finished. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I think this one might be a keeper for me. If you want to make your own here's how I made mine. I started with a old/vintage wood frame window. It was already painted white. Bonus. I then taped it off for the stripes. I painted the red stripes first. I used a brush to cut in the corners then rolled the paint on. I used a small roller and pan the throw away kind. I never throw away I just wash out well and reuse. I stored the roller, pan and brush is a large ziploc to keep it from drying out. After the red stripes were dry I then taped over them and painted the white stripes. Now that I think about it there was no need to retape the red stripes as I could of just painted the white over the whole pane. Live and learn. After it was good and dry I removed the tape. I then stenciled the stars on. I had to go over them several times. After the stars were dry I then rolled the blue on the whole pane. Again this took several coats. I painted on the backside/wrong side of the glass.Can be used indoors or outdoors as the paint is protected by the glass. Happy Painting.

Today I'm working on painting a flag on a old wood window. Its coming along. I'm painting the white stripes and the blue background today. Couldn't do it without the tape. The hardest part is letting the paint dry before painting over it. Takes a couple of coats. I"ll post again when I'm finished.
