My weekend of crafts!

This weekend I wanted to make some new 4th of July (24th of July also for Utah) crafts for my living room. I had some extra pieces of wood so I started with those! Hmmm...what can I make?

Some wood blocks that read U.S.A of course!! A flag as well! I love it!

And I ended with some firecrackers! I love how they all turned out with the deep blue and red colors!
I had also seen an idea for those pesky plastic Walmart sacks that get randomly strewn about in the bottom of my pantry. So I wanted to try what I had seen over at House of Grace. I started with a plain old empty coffee container...

Spray painted it white, added some wording and cut a slit in the lid...Whalaa! Storage for my plastic sacks!

Lastly, I had a fat vase that I had gotten at an auction a while back. I have taken really all blues out of my house, so it really does not match anything...

so I spray painted that white too!

And placed it up on top of my cupboards! I love it!

I am linking up over at the weekly CSI Project!
THIS weeks project is redoing my son's bedroom for his birthday! We gave all of the kids the option for their birthdays this year to either get presents or get a bedroom re-make...and they all chose the bedrooms! We have gotten the prepping done - furniture out, wallpaper border off, walls cleaned...I need to tape tonight and we are going to pick out carpet...hopefully I can get it all done in time! I am pretty sure we will not find any one who can do carpet in a pinch...but I really want to get the rest of the room done by the weekend for his birthday! Wish me luck!! I will show pictures next week! Promise! :)

I adore your patriotic spirit. It is red, white and bluetiful!

I hope you'll stop by for my bbq on an Anthropologie inspired white tablecloth. :)
