I decided to make a nautical tablescape in honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
My Hubby found this life preserver out by the curb. I thought I'd spuce it up to use for some future craft project. I cut off the old canvas straps, scrubbed it really well and spray painted it white.
See the before pic? It was pretty shabby, and not in a good way.
For now I'm leaving it plain to use in the background, but I really want to think up something else for it later on.
Anywho, it inspired the nautical 4th of July theme.
All of the stripped and red lobster themed tableware came from GW, as a set in this big bucket.
Pretty much everything else came from GW too!
I hand painted the burlap flag runner, sitting on the side table, last year. I just used regular acrylic paint, super easy!
I used a flameless candle so I could add the flags to my votive holder.
