DIY 4th of July Sign with Chalkboard Typography

You know I can’t resist when someone offers me some free goodies, especially when they say they’re going to BURN THEM.{{gasp}} If you’ve been following over the last few months, you know I was bestowed with the stash-to-end-all-stashes of cupboard doors.

Patriotic Bunting from Thrift Store Fabric

Do you ever say to yourself that you’re going to complete a project and yet, another year goes by? Then one day you finally pull up your boot straps and say, “No more excuses!!” My friends, I had been wanting to do this project for a couple of years now, but just couldn’t get it done for different reasons.

We didn’t get to complete the front set until this summer since we had to replace our windows last fall, and they had their debut a couple of weeks ago.

So here I am. Finally there is no excuse. With my coupon in hand, I headed to a local thrift store to snatch up some Independence Day goodness. (Yes, I even have coupons for the thrift store – ha!)

There was plenty of red, white, and blue fabric in the form of sheets, curtains, and remnants. Can you believe I was able to snag all that I needed plus tons more for less than $4? SCORE!
