I have been looking through every one's blogs and it has become apparent to me that it is time to start putting up some patriotic decor, except........I don't have any. Gasp!!! It wasn't until after July 4th last year that I decided to take the plunge into primitive decor for my home. Every new season and holiday requires a lot of planning, buying, and making in order to get things to look right. I usually just focus on my entry way for right now for these frequent changes.
Anyway, last night I was looking through blogs and pictures to get some much needed inspiration. Only, I was just feeling sorry for myself. I have a small problem of wanting everything....right now:) I needed to satisfy my desire for something with flags on it. And anytime less than right then wouldn't work. So, in between the kid's bath time and bed time I whipped this baby up.
I had a ugly trivet I found at GW just sitting in the corner of my room. It's been there for months. It was already this bland color of red so I just painted a mustard over it. Then I put the flag in the middle, sanded it up, put the letters and numbers on the sides and stained it good.
Ta Da... Primitive patriotic decor for me:)
Today is the last day of school and then I get the monkeys home for the summer. A whole new adventure is beginning. This morning I sat down and put a chore chart together, a daily summer schedule, and a calendar of all the events, classes, and trips we will be taking. So as far as this afternoon goes...
Summer has officially begun!!!!!
Thanks for visiting. I would love to know you were here:)
