I’ve been awaiting this day with bated breath…the porch is 99% complete (only need gutters and screens) and I am in love. I am going to put together a full reveal with all the detailed shots, sources and of course contact information for our amazing contractor, but in the mean time I figure if I don’t share it all dolled up for the fourth then I’ll have to wait another year. And y’all know patience isn’t one of my virtues. (Is anyone else singing “Patience is a virtue” from Thomas & Friends right now?)A view from the back of the house. We’ll landscape that bed this fall when we have a much better chance of survival! The flag buntings are from US Flag Store.
We landscaped the bed and path leading to the porch earlier in the spring and it’s all thriving. Now, y’all come on in! The stairs showcase the pots I found on clearance at the Savannah Target and the lanterns are from WalMart. Mother was a doll and dug up the potato vine from the back of her yard AND planted the pots for me while we were visiting. They were looking pretty rough for a few days but they did come back, just as she assured me they would.
Mother helped me make a second set of red pillow covers for use at fourth of July and the holidays. The fabrics are both from Premier Prints. The flag pillow was purchased from Pottery Barn a few years ago. Sweet Land of Liberty DIY canvas (with free printable) project showcased here. A tutorial for the frame with the “Dixie Land” quote is on the docket.
The flag runner was a wedding registry gift ten years ago. A few flags in my giant clam shell dressed it up for the holiday.
The flag made from reclaimed pine is from Pottery Barn.
I had grand plans to make a fabric bunting for the sideboard but ran flat out of time :-) There’s always next year! We did get the yard shaped up and flags in most of our pots…
Have a happy and safe fourth of July!
God bless the USA!
