Red & White Damask Barn Star
Exactly what I expected
This star is exactly what I expected. It is a lightweight metal which is perfect for hanging on a wall. The price was right so I purchased 2. It works perfectly with my rustic country victorian decor.

This star is very small, compared to what I was expecting. It does not measure 18", only 17 1/4", but seems even smaller. The star's description should be changed to the correct dimension. The white paint is touched up, especially in the center where the metal star is raised up, and it's a poor touch-up job. It looks okay from a distance, but not up close.
I'd read all the reviews before ordering. Some people mentioned the small size and the poor paint touch up; others did not. I was hoping I'd get one that didn't have the paint problem. No such luck. I decided to keep it, as I'm hanging it on the wall, and it looks okay from a distance. Besides, it's such a hassle to return it. We have several barn stars decorating our home inside and out. Compared to our other stars, the quality of this damask star is poor, and the price should be reduced accordingly.

In the catalogs, this star looks larger. It doesn't measure to the 15 inches as stated in the catalog. We had to return the first because it was damaged, the second wasn't much better but we kept it for decoration.
I would not recommend this item. Not as "hearty" as stars you might find in a gift shop. Light weight and flimsy.

Gorgeous home accent!
I was drawn to these because I use red and white to decorate throughout the year. These are beautiful in design, graceful and unique. If you price other metal stars this size, you will see that this is a great deal. I don't understand some of the other reviews and I'm not easy to please. These are a great buy and you get a lot of deco bang for your buck!

When I received the Damask Star, you could tell that the paint had chipped off in the middle of the star and along every line along each star point. It was "touched up" with white paint that didn't even match the white of the star. It appeared the a 4 year old could have done a better job with the touch up paint. Very disappointed in this product. I would not recommend buy this.
