all of my June posts in one handy place.
Click on any of the highlighted blue words 
if you want to read more on each one.
At the coffee station I put out the red, white 
and blue mugs. Then we had coffee with  
I used old clothes to make an easy
  patriotic scrap fabric wreath .
I got a new roo.
I'm using my Coke crate on the table. 
The sofa table gets a red, white and blue
makeover too.
For Father's Day I made a
  wreath using old ties.
This is an easy way to clean brass hardware
without harsh chemicals.
Ah....the after of the thrift store buffet.
I use a homemade mix of chalk paint for
the transformation. 
This is the before of my $30 thrift store buffet.
The summer kitchen is full of patriotic colors.
I made candle wreaths using scrap pieces of
 ribbon to go with my new color theme.
I changed the background paper in the
kitchen cabinets to a country red check
and showed how I added a plate rail to
hold a few of my blue and white plates.

I love the buffet and the way you painted it. Also love the red, white and blue kitchen look you've adopted - it looks fantastic!
