Red, White, and Blue at Inspiration Monday

There is so much red, white, and blue fun at today's Inspiration Monday party. We're so glad you're here to celebrate with us. Since we have this exciting patriotic season upon us, we can't help but dream of a lil' red, white, and blue. Check out today's festive features...and be sure to link up your own red, white, and blue inspiration (or whatever!) below.
Party for Bloggers
While summer is only getting started, we're already thinking about the red, white, and blue (or just the red and white, perhaps, for our Canadian party-goers?). Today's red, white, and blue features are seven patriotic ideas and recipes to make your summer as festive as possible. 

Patriotic Ideas for Your Holiday
Each of these red, white, and blue features were chosen by my co-hostess, Meegan, from What Meegan Makes. Check them all out below.

Arm Chair Makeover

This Arm Chair Makeover was quite the labor of love, y'all. I found out that reupholstering is not my jam (at least not a project that is this involved). But, I persevered and finished this arm chair with flying colors. This is also my Thrifty Style Team post this month...we have LOADS of thrifty ideas for you today. Check out my new arm chair and my friends' projects below.

Arm Chair Makeover
I've actually dabbled a bit in reupholstery before. So when I spotted a matching set of these 1990s chairs at an estate sale recently, I thought I totally could handle them. The intricacies of these chairs kind of took me down (so. much. piping.). Originally, I had intended to recover both of these chairs for our living room area, but this project quickly turned into one arm chair makeover only. I'm going to be taking the other one to a reupholstery shop. But, I am excited to share this one with you below...in all its recovered glory (along with a before pic, too!).

Free God Bless America Printable

This God Bless America printable post contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

I've been wanting to incorporate buffalo check and a bicycle into a patriotic printable for the longest time. This God Bless America printable is available in three buffalo check designs and one plain white background option. Hope you love this God Bless America printable as much as I do!
God Bless America
I feel like watercolor buffalo check just kind of screams patriotic, right? Especially in red and blue...and *maybe* khaki, too, right? The sweet little blue bicycle carrying a bunch of red and white flowers just takes it over the top into the cuteness category. Grab the God Bless America design that works best for you below.
