Flag Door & Free Vintage Americana Images

We had an old door that I painted Americana and then hung at the end of our porch.  
*************************************
I painted the entire door white.  Then using masking tape, I taped at equal distance...stripes.  Painted the red stripes. Next I painted a dark blue square.  After it dried I hammered a nail in the center of the square and hung the metal star (from Joann's Fabrics).
 This was a couple of years ago and it has held up really well. Joining in with all the goodness over @ http://savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/



******************************
******************************
Spray paint it, plant it and stick a flag in it!

I love to cross stitch Americana/flag designs. There are quite a few free charts online. Here are a couple.

These are fun to print out and frame and add here and there for Patriotic decor that is inexpensive.







Blessings,
Debbie

What is it they say about being a day late and a dollar short? That is how I feel when I look at your adorable door. I had an old door hanging around in my side yard forever. I knew there was something I could do with it, but hadn't come up with an idea. Then when we did our yearly spring yard clean-up, I threw it into the back of the pick-up and off to the dump it went. Isn't that the way it goes? Your American flag door is an out-of-the-box awe-inspiring project. If you have a moment come on over for a visit. I'm new to blogging, but having a ball. Connie :)

I simply love this door, and you've inspired me to try it myself on my front porch. Thanks so much for the adorable printables, too.

Hi, Debbie -
I just found your blog in a round-about way through a couple of blogs I've been reading over the past few days. I LOVE your door and your patriotic decor. Reading your profile I can see that we have a lot in common. I'll be back often to see what you have to share. Can't wait to see more!
